The Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center has developed a partnership with Sunnyside Federal of Irvington, New York to offer the Sunnyside Federal Grant Program for Teachers. This program is designed to assist them in teaching about the Holocaust and related topics including human rights, antisemitism, discrimination, racism, and genocide.
The goal for this program is to enrich student learning experiences, subsidize special programs, and help to meet instructional needs for schools not otherwise supported by their budgets. Grants of up to $400 will be awarded to teachers working in public, private and parochial schools in the Lower Hudson Valley.
Applications will be reviewed by the Educators Program Committee of the HHREC and Director of Education, Steven Goldberg. Grant recipients will be required to submit a one-page summary statement and an evaluation at the completion of their projects from materials suitable for replication submitted to HHREC.
Grant applications will be open to teachers starting August 15th, 2023 and the deadlines for submission of grant proposals and notification of awards will be made on a rolling basis. Notifications of reviewed applications will be responded to within one month of receipt.
