How We Help
The foundation encourages high academic standards, experiential learning, and excellence in teaching by providing scholarships and grants for new and innovative projects that, due to budget limitations, the school is unable to fund.
Students who are eligible for the Free or Reduced Lunch Program can receive assistance from SESEF to participant in educational experiences that they might not otherwise be able to afford. Qualifying students can receive up to $750 per year, with unused support rolling over from their Junior year into their Senior year.
In the 2015-2016 school year, 51 students received assistance for 91 experiences, totaling $18,830.00.
The financial constraints on a smaller school like SES can make backing faculty innovation difficult. SESEF accepts grant requests for one-time investments that might otherwise not get funded.
In the 2015-2016 school year, 7 grants, totaling $2,741.08 where provided by SESEF.
United Nations / EOCSOC
SESEF has a special relationship with the United Nations, allowing students and faculty members participate in U. N. conventions, such as climate conferences and economic and social conferences.
SESEF continues to support a student-led effort to have SES LEED v4 (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified.
