The goal of the program is to create healthier school environments that experience positive, sustainable, and lasting change through comprehensive strategies. The Highmark Foundation has a new look and feel with some changes that are intended to make it easier for schools to apply for the grants and implement the programs. Your school may apply for a school grant in one of four areas: Bullying Prevention, Child Injury Prevention, Environmental Health, or Healthy Eating & Physical Activity. Public, private, vocational high school, parochial and charter schools throughout West Virginia and Pennsylvania (excluding Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties) are invited to apply. Now entering its sixth year, the Highmark Foundation’s School Grant and Awards Program has provided more than $1.8 million of support to schools in communities served by Highmark Inc. in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
