The Dawn Moses Memorial Innovation Grant pays tribute to the legacy of former AEF/AEEF Board Member Dawn Moses. Dawn served on the board from 2005-2012 and passed away in 2012.
This grant acknowledgement is given annually to the Innovations in Education grant that most embodies Dawn’s spirit: creative, rigorous, and deeply attentive to the needs and interests of students and teachers.
Dawn’s dedication to AEF’s work was clear. She especially advocated for sustainable, student-centered grants that encompassed alternative ways of learning. Whether art grants or science grants, Dawn alwhttp://www.arlingtoneducationfoundationma.org/wp/aef-introduces-dawn-grantays looked for grants that would inspire students in the classroom, hallways or playground.
