NJEA Hipp Foundation awards more than $31,000 in new grants

NJEA believes that educators’ ingenuity should not be stifled by lack of funds. That’s why the NJEA Frederick L. Hipp Foundation for Excellence in Education has awarded another six grants totaling $31,185, including one continuation grant, to support creative projects by public school educators.

Established in 1993, the NJEA Frederick L. Hipp Foundation for Excellence in Education is dedicated to supporting projects that will enhance and improve the learning environment in our schools. Since its creation, the Foundation has cumulatively awarded over $2.3 million in grants in support of 435 innovative educational projects that represent a bold, fresh approach by public school employees.
