Each fall and spring semester, teachers and other faculty members are encouraged to submit grant proposals for projects intended to help improve students' learning experiences. Each application is carefully evaluated by the WBEF Grants Committee to ensure that funded projects are within the policies of the school corporation, are consistent with the goals of the WBEF, and are beneficial to the students and/or staff involved. To date, the WBEF has awarded over $125,000 in grants to deserving programs. See the list below of some of the former grant recipients.
