Learning and Leadership Grants
NEA Foundation Invites Applications for Learning and Leadership Grants
The NEA Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the National Education Association, is a public charity supported by contributions from educators’ dues, corporate sponsors, and others. The foundation supports student success by helping public school educators work with key partners to build strong systems of shared responsibility.
As part of an effort to achieve this goal, the foundation is inviting applications to its Learning and Leadership Grants program. The program provides grants to public school teachers, public education support professionals, and/or faculty and staff in public institutions of higher education to fund their participation in high-quality professional development experiences such as summer institutes or action research; and grants to groups to fund collegial study, including study groups, action research, lesson study, or mentoring experiences for faculty or staff new to an assignment.
Grant amounts are $2,000 for individuals and $5,000 for groups engaged in collegial study. All group grant applicants must include partner information.
To be eligible, applicants must be pre-K-12 public school educators; public school education support professionals; or faculty or staff at a public institution of higher education. The foundation encourages education support professionals to apply. Preference will be given to members of the National Education Association.
For complete program guidelines, an FAQ, information about previous grantees, and application instructions, see the NEA Foundation website.
Deadline: February 1, 2019
