Grant of the Week: NEA Student Achievement Grants

The Student Achievement Grant program from the NEA Foundation is currently accepting applications from practicing U.S.: public school teachers in grades PreK–12, public school education support professionals, or faculty or staff at public higher education institutions..

The goal of these grants is "to improve the academic achievement of students in U.S. public schools and public higher education institutions in any subject area(s)".

Proposed work should engage students in critical thinking and problem solving that deepen their knowledge of standards-based subject matter. The work should also improve students’ habits of inquiry, self-directed learning, and critical reflection.

Applications are due by Oct. 15, 2007

Teachers with less than seven years of experience in the profession and education support professionals are encouraged to apply.
