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 its effort to achieve this goal, the foundation is inviting applications for its Learning and Leadership Grants program. The program provides support to public school teachers, public education support professionals, and/or faculty and staff in public institutions of higher education through grants to individuals in support of their participation in high-quality professional development experiences such as summer institutes or action research; or grants to groups in support of 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 a public school educator in grades pre-K–12; a public school education support professional; or a faculty/staff member 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, visit the NEA Foundation website.
