E.E. Ford Foundation Grant Awarded
We are thrilled to have been awarded a $50,000 matching grant from the Edward E. Ford Foundation for the further expansion of our Global Education & Serviam Program.
"We are extremely pleased that the E.E. Ford Foundation specifically noted the thoughtful direction our school is taking and our extraordinary stewardship," said President Eileen Davidson.
This grant was awarded in November 2016 after a highly competitive and comprehensive application process. It will be matched 1:1 with gifts from major donors.
The total $100,000 funding will provide important resources to continue the annual Global Education & Serviam Symposium, to enhance the new Global Scholars Program, and to strengthen our growing partnership with Concern Worldwide via the Global Concerns Classroom. As Ursuline's expertise continues to develop, our New Rochelle school will share our model for schoolwide global education with sister Ursuline schools and others.
We are excited to move forward with the important work of our Ursuline mission to create an awareness of global challenges in each student - whether she travels or not - and to ignite lifelong reflection and conversation on how she might use her skills and talents to improve the lives of others.
