Faculty Grants Application
2023 Jeffrey M. Haitkin ’62 Faculty Grants
The Brooklyn Tech Alumni Foundation and the Parents Association, working through the Jeffrey M. Haitkin ’62 Faculty Grants Committee, believe that one of the most significant means to affect student learning is to fund grants to meet the unmet and unfunded educational needs of students. Each school year, the committee awards grants of up to $2,500 to worthy projects that significantly influence student learning. Department AP approval is needed for applications over that amount.
The Foundation and PA will accept applications from March 1 to April 5, 2023. The grant process is competitive in nature. The committee, comprised of members of the Alumni Board and the Parents Association, will review all qualified grant applications, and make recommendations on funding. The Principal and his designees serve in an advisory capacity. Based on the funding available, the committee will choose to invest in projects that best serve our school’s students and support the mission of Brooklyn Tech.
The grant program promotes education, activities in classrooms, clubs, professional development, and athletics. The program encourages development of innovative activities within the prescribed curriculum.
