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 and key partners to build robust systems of shared responsibility.

As part of an 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 to fund participation in high-quality professional development experiences; or grants in support of collegial study, including study groups, action research, lesson study, or mentoring experiences for faculty or staff new to an assignment.

Grants of $2,000 will be awarded to individuals, while groups engaged in collegial study will receive awards of $5,000. All group grant applications must include partner information.

To be eligible, applicants must be public school preK–12 educators; public school education support professionals; or faculty and staff 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 Web site.
