Grants for Educators Grants in Action Riecke Fellowship


As always, I am honored to receive an Achieve grant. The committee’s commitment to enriching the lives of our students and fulfilling the wishes of teachers is greatly appreciated and I am truly grateful.


Susan Brody, Educator

Achieve’s music scholarships have opened the door to so much more than voice lessons. I have gained new skills, opportunities, self-esteem, and a teacher who has been a mentor for growing into the adult world.
