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.

Grantee Spotlight

Check out the great video from El Paso Independent School District showcasing their DoDEA Education Partnership and Resources grant project in Milam Elementary School. "The students are learning coding skills, logic, problem-solving...and that math, science, and technology can be fun!" This project shows that you are never too young to learn to code!
Widefield School District 3 (WSD3) received news coverage for its DoDEA grant project. The grant will be used toward a STEM initiative in the district. "This grant allows students to see computers and technology as tools for creation, not just consumption," said Kevin Duren, Executive Director of Secondary Student Learning and Math Achievement. Learn more about the WSD3 grant here.
