The Corona Norco Schools Educational Foundation is pleased to announce that over $550,000 in grants have been awarded to teachers who demonstrate the leadership, innovativeness, and impact to our students and programs. Grants are awarded to teachers which benefit students in all CNUSD schools in the Corona, Norco, and Eastvale areas.
Grants are awarded to educators who dare to explore, experiment, and provide enrichment to their students' learning experience. We encourage all CNUSD teaching staff to apply annually.
In exchange for receiving a grant, recipients are asked to share the excitement by sending us a photo with your newly received awarded item or program! Also, be sure to post on your favorite social media platform using our hashtag #cnsef and tag us in it!

- How do I submit my application? Simply click on the button at the top of this screen when the application window opens in the fall of each year.
- How will my application be graded? To make this process as easy as possible, a current grading rubric is also provided when grant applications are released. The details in this rubric serves as the guidance and support needed to complete the application as thoroughly and accurately as possible.

- Will I be notified if I did not receive a grant? Notifications are generally distributed within 30-45 days after the application deadline. Only winners are notified.

We work directly with CNUSD's Purchasing Department to get your equipment or supplies ordered quickly, and work directly with Human Resources administration if the project requires hiring of personnel.
