Arthur Vining Davis Foundation: Secondary Education ProgramDeadline: November 1, 2014
The Arthur Vining Davis Foundation is a national philanthropic organization established through the generosity of the late Arthur Vining Davis. The Foundation provides grants to initiatives within secondary education that have the capacity for expansion or replication to the state, regional, or national levels. The Foundation welcomes requests across a wide range of initiatives, including projects that improve professional development for in-service and pre-service teachers, strengthen teaching skills, support practical research in high school education, and/or encourage the innovative use of technology and new techniques for presentation of classroom materials.
Projects should aim to develop solutions with potential for wide application or replication by others. Requests for support from well-established programs should be for initiatives with the potential to improve the program significantly. Special consideration will be given to projects in their early stages that address the concerns and problems of secondary education on a national level. In considering proposals to support high school teaching, sustained partnerships between the faculties of colleges (e.g., arts and sciences and education) and school districts, or collaborative efforts involving reform organizations, colleges/universities, and high schools are encouraged.
Amount: Grants range from $25,000-$200,000.
Eligibility: Public and private colleges and universities, graduate schools of education, and freestanding educational organizations.
