Apply for an NEA Grant This Summer

Summer is the perfect time to plan for the year ahead and apply for grants available through the NEA Foundation—a public charity founded by educators for educators to improve public education for all students.

The NEA Foundation is currently accepting applications for Student Achievement Grants and Learning & Leadership Grants.

All active NEA members are eligible to apply for both grants; however, the foundation is currently giving preference to proposals that incorporate STEM and/or global learning into projects.

Student Achievement Grants

Educators frequently need outside funding for classroom resources. With the Student Achievement grants, NEA members are helping students learn how to think critically and solve problems. The NEA Foundation has successfully provided funding to thousands of educators to enable them to take the lead on a wide range of projects to improve student learning.

Two levels of funding are available: $2,000 and $5,000. Grants fund activities for 12 months from the date of the award.

Learning & Leadership Grants

Educators frequently need outside resources to engage in meaningful professional development due to limited district funding. Through the Learning & Leadership grants, the NEA Foundation supports the professional development of NEA members by providing grants to:

  • Individuals to participate in high-quality professional development like summer institutes, conferences, seminars, travel abroad programs, or action research
  • Groups to fund collegial study, including study groups, action research, lesson plan development, or mentoring experiences for faculty or staff

Two levels of funding are available: $2,000 and $5,000. Grants fund activities for 12 months from the date of the award.
