Teachers Invited to Apply for Jordan Fundamentals Grant Program
Deadline: June 15, 2004

The Jordan Fundamentals Grant Program was established in 1999 to recognize outstanding teaching and instructional creativity in public secondary schools that serve economically disadvantaged students. In 2004, the program has been expanded to include grades one through six. The program is presented by the Jordan Brand, a division of Nike, Inc., and administered by Scholarship America.

Applicants to the program must be public school teachers or paraprofessionals working with students in grades one through twelve, and be employed by an accredited public school where at least 50 percent of the school’s student population is eligible for the free or reduced school lunch program.

Applicants must develop an original lesson plan or thematic unit (a series of lessons with related learning objectives united by a common theme) that demonstrates high expectations for students. Applicants are encouraged to involve students in the development of this plan or unit. The plan or unit should not be derived from any commercial package.

Up to four hundred grants of $2,500 will be awarded each year: 200 grants in grades one through six, and 200 grants in grades seven through twelve. Grant funds must be used for resource materials, supplies, equipment, transportation or other costs related to field trips, software, and other items required to implement and evaluate the proposed lesson or thematic unit.

See the program’s Web site to download complete guidelines and an application form.
