CAIS School Innovation Grant

The CAIS Vision is to be the standard of excellence in learning and leadership, shaping the future of education. CAIS supports continuous whole school improvement by providing funding to schools that wish to take part in relevant research. The purpose of the CAIS School Innovation Grant (SIG) is aligned to the CAIS Strategic Plan, and designed to build school-based research capacity across CAIS schools through the administration and support of the CAIS School Innovation Grant Program.

We invite proposals for research projects that inspire and support school improvement. Successful applicants should be prepared to commence their research following an information meeting in January 2020. Research projects must be designed for completion no later than January 2021, and presentations will be scheduled during the 2021-2022 school year.

Researchers will be supported through the process by members of the SIG Committee. There is no requirement for prior research experience, but projects will be subject to an approval process that assures use of an acceptable research design and methodology, and the application of professional research standards. Joint proposals from more than one CAIS school are welcome.

The Grant is for $2,000, and it is paid directly to the school ($1,000 per year for each of the two years).

Applications are now closed.
