Apply for an NEA Foundation Grant to Support PD or Student Success

Teachers frequently need outside funding to purchase classroom resources and to engage in meaningful professional development. The NEA Foundation has grants available to current NEA members to help with both.

NEA Foundation Student Success grants support teachers in purchasing resource materials, supplies, equipment, transportation, technology, or scholars-in-residence. The NEA Foundation is currently giving preference to proposals that incorporate STEM and/or global competence into projects.

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, and to
  • groups to fund collegial study, including study groups, action research, lesson plan development, or mentoring experiences for faculty or staff.

The foundation gives preference to proposals that incorporate STEM and/or global competence in their projects.

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

The third and final 2019 deadline for applications for both grants is coming up on October 15.

Find out more and then apply for either a Student Success grant or a Learning & Leadership grant.
