Hearst Foundation Education Grants

Hearst Foundation - December 10, 2012

The Hearst Foundation seeks to fund educational institutions demonstrating uncommon success in preparing students to thrive in a global society. The Foundations’ focus is largely on higher education, but they also fund innovative models of early childhood and K-12 education, as well as professional development.

Eligible Organizations

Applicants must be a nonprofit organization able to submit proof of their 501(c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service. On a limited basis, the Foundation will consider funding for the following types of organizations:

  • Groups focusing on domestic abuse, substance abuse, or child abuse;
  • Food banks and food delivery; and,
  • Faith-based organizations, provided that the services they offer are inclusive and fit within the Foundation’s guidelines.

Applying organizations cannot have an operating budget under $1 million. Special priority will be given to higher education scholarships and, on a limited basis, scholarships for post-graduate education. Professional development for faculty is also a major priority.

Closing Dates

No deadline – applications are accepted year-round
