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 17 grants totaling $84,567 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 awarded over $2.2 million in support of 411 innovative educational projects that represent a bold, fresh approach by public school employees.
