Lindblad-National Geographic Fund (LEX-NG Fund). In 2010, the LEX-NG Fund agreed to a large, three-year grant to establish a need-based scholarship program (the LEX-NG Scholars Program) and to finance educational improvements at the School. The grant resulted in transformational changes, including greater access for students from financially challenged families and significant improvements in education quality. LEX-NG agreed to a second three-year grant in 2012, which continued the Scholars Program and allowed additional program enhancements. In late 2014, the LEX-NG Fund committed to increasing its support of our programs through a one-year renewable grant.
Galapagos Conservancy (GC). In 2011, GC responded to a request from the Scalesia Foundation to assemble a team of educators to conduct an external review of the school and to facilitate a strategic planning process. Since that time, GC and the Scalesia Foundation have worked closely on school improvement projects, building local and national support for a regional school improvement program, and fundraising.
