Student Grant Awards 2014-2015

We are pleased to announce the PPIE Innovative Student Grant awards for 2014- 2015.  Fourteen (14) Pleasanton Unified School District students from the elementary, middle and high school levels were awarded a total of $5,002.00 in funding for a variety of student-initiated projects.

The Innovative Grant Program is made possible in great part by a generous grant of $30,000 from the Oracle Giving Foundation to fund projects within the Science, Math, Engineering and Technology categories.
