Midway Education Foundation

The mission of the Midway ISD Education Foundation is to generate and distribute resources to the Midway Independent School District for programs and projects that enhance the quality of education.

The 2024-25 Annual Drive is underway. Our primary program, Grants for Great Ideas, provides grant funding for individual teachers up to $1,500 and up to $5,000 for groups of teachers to implement creative and innovative programs in the classroom.

Grants & Scholarships

Our grants and scholarships are designed to cover a wide range of expenses, including tuition for graduate programs, conference attendance, and the purchase of educational materials. With these grants and scholarships, teachers can stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in their field, deepen their expertise, and bring new ideas and methods to the classroom.
