The National Education Association Foundation
The Foundationís Student Achievement grants seek to improve the academic achievement of students in U.S. public schools and public higher education institutions in any subject area. Proposed projects should engage students in critical thinking and problem solving that deepens their knowledge of standards-based subject matter. Projects should also improve studentsí habits of inquiry, self-directed learning, and critical reflection. Of particular interest are proposals for work that results in low-income and minority student success with honors, advanced placement, or other challenging curriculum. Funds may be used for resource materials, supplies, equipment, transportation, software, or scholars-in-residence. Applications may be submitted at any time. Applicants must be practicing U.S. public school teachers in grades Pre-K-12, public school education support professionals, or faculty and staff at public higher education institutions. Preference will be given to applicants who serve economically disadvantaged students and/or who are members of NEA. The Foundation encourages applications from teachers with less than seven years of experience in the profession as well as education support professionals.
