Special Call for Research Applications – supporting middle years teaching!

September 10, 2018

The Foundation is pleased to announce that as part of the 2019-2020 Notice of Intent process, a special call for research projects in middle year’s education will occur. Teachers and other educators interested in pursuing a research project should contact the Foundation for more information and clearly state in their Notice of Intent that their project will focus on middle year’s education.

The Foundation accepts directed gifts from individuals or organizations to fund research in target areas that fit within the mission and mandate of the Foundation and enhance teaching and learning in the province. This year a donor provided a gift to support research that highlights the unique opportunities and challenges middle year’s educators experience.

The Ministry of Education defines middle schools education in Saskatchewan as grades 6-9.

For more information about this opportunity or about grant funding in general please contact the McDowell Foundation at
