The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation is now accepting applications for the $100,000 School Challenge, presented by University of Phoenix, to benefit schools across the state of Arizona.
The program is open to all Arizona public, private and nonprofit charter schools, grades K-12. Teachers and administrators are encouraged to “make their best pitch” on why they deserve to receive funding by submitting an application online at www.dbacks.com/schoolchallenge by Sept. 28.
The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and University of Phoenix provide a combined $100,000 for the program. The grants, which range up to $5,000, have helped schools from across the state with innovative programs to satisfy an array of needs, ranging from laundry and showers for homeless students, to a 3-D printer and a nine-hole mini golf course, to a computer programming buddy system.
