NEA Foundation Invites Applications for Learning & Leadership Grant Program

The NEA Foundation, the charitable arm of the National Education Association, supports student success by helping public school educators work with key partners to build strong systems of shared responsibility. The foundation, through the strength of its partnership with educators, advances student achievement by investing in public education that will prepare every one of America’s children to learn and thrive in a rapidly changing world.

Through its Learning & Leadership program, the foundation makes awards of up to $2,000 to support the participation of public school teachers, public education support professionals, and/or faculty and staff at public institutions of higher education in high-quality professional development experiences such as summer institutes or action research. It also awards grants of up to $5,000 to support group projects related to collegial study, including study groups, action research, lesson study, or mentoring experiences for faculty or staff new to an assignment.

To be eligible, applicants must be a public school educator in grades pre-K-12, a public school education support professional, or a faculty or staff member at a public institution of higher education. The foundation encourages applications from education support professionals and will give preference to members of the National Education Association.

See the NEA Foundation website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, and application instructions.
