The Trustees of the LWVMA Lotte E. Scharfman Education Fund (LESF) have scheduled an additional funding cycle for the Citizen Education Grant Program. The deadline for submission of the grant application is June 2, and the money would be dispersed no later than mid-July.
The additional funding cycle was added primarily because the first fall deadline (2013) will be October 1, with payments disbursed at the end of October. While the grant committee felt this date will allow Leagues to hold their first fall board meeting before the deadline, it may be late for those Leagues planning early fall events or projects. Leagues can submit an application June 2 for planned early fall activities.
