|The North Syracuse Education Foundation (NSEF) is proud to announce their 2022-2023 grant award winners. Eight North Syracuse Central School District educators were recognized at the May 23 Board of Education Meeting for receiving grants from the North Syracuse Education Foundation (NSEF) in their 2022 Grant Award’s Program. NSEF resources support quality education through creative opportunities, and innovative/imaginative approaches.
Since 2002 the NSEF has funded more than $200,000 in grant programs for math, literacy, science, foreign language and the arts.
The NSEF is able to provide these grants through generous contributions from the community. The mission of the Foundation is to sponsor activities and projects intended to enhance the education and cultural enrichment of the students of the North Syracuse Central School District. The activities are not funded by the regular school budget.
