A Champion Project is a submission to the Edmonton Catholic School Foundation (by ECSD staff) requesting financial support outside of teaching dollars on behalf of students or their families within any of the Catholic schools in Edmonton. There are two granting periods a year. To be eligible for the Spring allocation, proposals must be submitted by March 30th. The Fall grant applications are due November 15th. Applications are open all year and may be submitted at any time. You can apply by going to our Apply page.
Champion Projects Fund Eligibility Criteria:
1. Champion Project applications which request funding for ECS District wide student Conferences (e.g., B.E.S.T., Makers Space, Young Authors, etc.) do not qualify for a Champion Project Fund grant.
