The South Jefferson Teacher's Association Foundation Fund was established in 1989 as a means to provide recognition and financial assistance for students who wish to attend enrichment activities which a sponsoring teacher feels will enhance the students’ experience at South Jefferson in our regular academic or extra-curricular programs.


  • Any student in Grades K-12, who is presently enrolled in the South Jefferson Central School District, is eligible to apply for this award.
  • The program must be deemed beneficial to the student's educational experience. Priority to one-time or once a year activities will be given over continued activities. Programs may include but are not limited to, academics, fine arts, leadership, cultural and sports-related activities.
  • Requests involving monthly or yearly memberships or dues, or uniforms will not be given consideration.
  • Due to legal restrictions, Church-related programs will not be given consideration.

Application Process and Presentation of Awards:
  • Applications will be accepted throughout the school year. Once an application is submitted, it will be reviewed by the Foundation Fund committee.  A member of the Foundation Fund committee will reach out to the applicant if more information is needed to process the award. 
  • It is important that we receive all applications at least one month before the registration deadline of the event for which you are seeking an award. 
  • All applications must have a sponsoring teacher.  Simply identify that teacher on your application and we will reach out to that person to request a statement of recommendation.
  • Applications should be completed by the parent and student together. Student input is a requirement. 
  • A member of the committee will contact the family within one week of receiving the application. 
Award Distribution
  • Students can apply for an award two times during their years at South Jefferson, at any grade level.
