The National Center for Learning and Citizenship (NCLC) at the Education Commission of the States is pleased to announce the release of the Request for Proposals for Learn and Serve Schools of Success: A National Network of Service-Learning Schools. Click here for the RFP.


Middle schools serving grades 6-9 are invited to apply for the Schools of Success Awards. With funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service’s Learn and Serve America program, NCLC will select 10 schools with extensive service-learning experience that wish to promote high-quality service-learning to address STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) objectives in middle schools with large populations of youth from disadvantaged backgrounds.

We would like to direct your attention to the eligibility requirements listed below.

Schools interested in submitting an application to participate in this Service-Learning Schools of Success Network must:

* Be a middle school (grades 6-9) with at least 50% of their students receiving free or reduced price lunch
* Agree to serve a minimum of 100 students per school annually in STEM service-learning projects.

Selected schools will receive a $5,000 award annually for three years, in addition to training and technical assistance. If you have any questions about eligibility or RFP details, please contact Ann Rautio, arautio@ecs.org or 303-299-3606.

Please note that Intents to Apply are due January 8, 2010.

We look forward to your submissions.
