Established in 1993, the Hipp Foundation was created to provide opportunities for school employees to expand their visions of excellence in our classrooms and schools.
Applications will be accepted by mail with a postmark date no later than March 1 of each year. We encourage you to read the section on Tips for Applying before you complete the application.
Please be aware that the Hipp Application was recently modified to eliminate the requirement that the applicant identify the type of grant being sought. However, an applicant requesting a Continuation Grant* will need to provide feedback on the status of the current grant and the potential for continued success in an additional section.
To apply for a Hipp Grant:
Complete the application and obtain all three signatures (coordinator, superintendent, local president), and mail to:
NJEA Frederick L. Hipp Foundation for Excellence in Education
