Jordan Fundamentals Program Offers Support for Teachers in Low-Income School
Deadline: June 15, 2005

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. The program is presented by the Jordan Brand, a division of Nike, Inc. (<a href=""></a>) and administered by Scholarship America (<a href=""></a>).

Applicants 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 that demonstrates high expectations for students. Applicants are encouraged to involve students in the development of this plan or unit.

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

For more information, including application and eligibility requirements, see the program’s Web site.
