The Warrick Public Education Foundation (WPEF) operates as a philanthropic organization to enhance
education by supporting imaginative programs and projects. It is a non-profit, broadly based partnership in
education established to encourage, promote and assist educational excellence in the Warrick County
School Corporation. Unfortunately every grant submitted cannot be awarded. The Board does consider
each grant and its individual merit based on the time it is submitted and in accordance with all other grants
submitted in the same time period. A grant honored in one time period may not be honored in another, based
on the merit of all grants submitted during that time period.
Education Grants are awarded to teachers to fund activities that enhance and improve the learning
experience of their students. Every teacher in the Warrick County School Corporation is eligible to
apply for an Education Grant.
