The Bush Foundation has supported education for decades. Since 2009, we have directed our efforts toward a specific goal: Increasing the percentage of students from all backgrounds who attain postsecondary success.

We do this in two primary ways: We make big investments in big ideas through our Major Investments and provide support for organizations that create the environment for education improvements through our Education Ecosystem Grants.

Our support for education is not limited to these programs. People and organizations working in education may apply for support through any of our grant and fellowship programs.

Our work in this area
