The Stephen P. Robinson Collaboration Grants

Educators across the country have witnessed the incredible changes and challenges schools face in the modern era. We believe independent schools, with their ability to adapt and innovate, are uniquely positioned to find solutions and model new practices. Collaboration with others fosters creativity and goodwill. Schools who collaborate with other organizations are able to accomplish greater goals for themselves and the community.  


The Stephen P. Robinson Collaboration Grants were created to encourage independent schools to form new partnerships with other schools or institutions of higher education, with preference given to collaborations with other schools serving students in any grades from K through 12th. SAIS will annually divide a total of $25,000. Five member schools each will receive $5,000. Those applying must demonstrate a vision and capacity to pursue and carry out meaningful collaborations. Successful examples have demonstrated efforts that benefit the greater community or region in unique ways. Schools selected for grants will share their results with the SAIS community by delivering a presentation at the SAIS Annual Conference, and submitting a publishable paper. 


SAIS will accept proposals for the 2017 Collaboration Grants between October 1 and December 31, 2017. Please use this form to submit your proposal. Awards will be announced and disbursed by February 1, 2018.  Click for details.


Recipients of grants will track the life of their project and make a presentation outlining their journey at the SAIS Annual Conference in October. They will also submit a paper to SAIS to be published.
