Fund for TeachersDeadline: January 31, 2018
The Fund for Teachers awards summer fellowship grants to pre-K-12th grade teachers to pursue self-designed professional learning. Teachers decide what they want to learn and where they want to learn it. Their odysseys take them all over the world—as scientists, researchers, artists, and agents of change—and they return to their classrooms with new ideas that transform student learning and achievement.
Amount: Individuals may apply for up to $5,000 and teams may apply for up to $10,000.
Eligibility: Full-time pre-K-12th grade teachers that:
- Spend at least 50% of their work week in direct classroom instruction
- Will return to the classroom in the consecutive school year
- Will have at least three years’ experience as a pre-K-12th grade teacher at the end of the school year
