National Education Association Foundation: Student Achievement GrantsDeadline: October 15, 2019
The National Education Association (NEA) Foundation believes public education should stimulate students’ curiosity and excitement about learning and help them become successful 21st-century global citizens. Student Achievement grants seek to help students learn how to think critically and solve problems. Grant funds can be used for resource materials, supplies, equipment, transportation, technology, or scholars-in-residence. Although some funds may be used to support the professional development necessary to implement the project, the majority of grant funds must be spent on materials or educational experiences for students. The proposed work and related materials should focus on students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Preference will be given to projects that incorporate STEM and/or global learning into projects.
Amount: Grants will be awarded in the amount of either $2,000 or $5,000 based on the submitted budget. No partial grants are given.
Eligibility: Applicants must be NEA members who are U.S. teachers, counselors, or education support professionals employed by a public school, including public higher education institutions. NEA members in the Department of Defense school system are also eligible to apply.
