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.

Resources include brochures, directories, handouts/ printables, and information on informal strategies or formal programs that may assist school personnel and service providers working with military-connected students and families.

Check out this inspirational video about how Watertown City Schools educators are using 3D printing to create parts for face shields to protect local COVID19 medical responders.
The Mountain Home School District in Idaho worked quickly to create an online plan for students to keep everyone connected. “Everyone just kind of came together, our community, teachers, parents, within that next week Chromebooks were handed out and everyone was collaborating and coming together to be successful for our students.” You can read more about the district’s transition to online learning here.


DoDEA is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2020 Grants to Military-Connected Local Educational Agencies for Academic and Support Programs (MCASP).
