The Engelmann Foundation, created in 1997, is dedicated to continuing the legacy of Siegfried "Zig" Engelmann through the support, promotion, and development of educators around the world implementing Direct Instruction with their students. Over the past 20 years, the foundation has distributed 56 grants totaling over $325,000.
The Engelmann Foundation offers two grant opportunities: Conference Grants and General Grants. Conference Grants are tailored to provide funds to attend the annual National Direct Instruction Conference hosted by the National Institute for Direct Instruction in Eugene, Oregon each July. General Grants are designed to support projects, training and development, implementation, and other similar endeavors that utilize Direct Instruction (DI) programs. Both grant application types operate on a twice-yearly schedule. The deadlines for submitting grants are 5:00 pm PDT December 1st and June 1st. Note that while grant applications are accepted on an on-going basis, applications will be held for consideration until the next grant cycle deadline.
