Dear Partners:

To advance the lives of our military-connected students, the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) relies on one true vision: “Excellence in Education for Every Student, Every Day, Everywhere.” The DoDEA Education Partnership Grant Program beautifully showcases this vision. Since 2009, DoDEA has awarded over 475 grants in 36 states reaching over 3,000 military-connected public schools nationwide. 

Through our grant program we are building partnerships that help military connected students be college and career ready. By sharing resources, we can empower students to work toward clear, consistent and high-reaching goals and exceed learning expectations in order to achieve a rich, rigorous and well-rounded education. This website is yet another way we share our resources with our partners. This website provides a centralized location for military-connected school districts who have been awarded DoDEA grants and those who are grant seekers to find information about our grant tools and resources.
