1619 Education Impact Grant, Pulitzer Center – Apr 15

Posted by Pulitzer Center on February 27, 2024

As an official education partner of The 1619 Project since its original publication in The New York Times Magazine nearly five years ago, the Pulitzer Center has engaged hundreds of educators and administrators working across a variety of educational contexts to better understand and better teach the history and legacies of slavery in the United States.

We are excited to continue this work by announcing our latest initiative: the 1619 Education Impact Grant.

We invite educational professionals working with students and educators in K-12 learning environments to apply for Education Impact Grants to finance educational projects that utilize at least one resource from The 1619 Project to:

  1. Improve the awareness and critical thinking of students and/or educators about the legacies of slavery in the contemporary United States, and the contributions of Black Americans to every aspect of U.S. society
  2. Equip students and/or educators to take action and make change that advances racial justice

We are seeking projects that go beyond the individual classroom level to engage large groups of learners on the school, district, and/or community level. We encourage smaller districts and/or educators working in alternative learning environments to collaborate and apply as a multi-site or multi-organizational project. We hope that this grant program, like our 1619 Education Network before it, will develop a national, multidisciplinary community of practice among educators.

Grant funds are available in two tiers, dependent on project scope and reach.

All applications are due Monday, April 15, 2024, by 11:59pm EDT.
