Fund your innovative student learning with NEA Foundation Grants
Innovative, impactful student learning often takes planning and funding. As educators, we’re used to tackling the planning, but where do we get the funding to grow as professionals and offer new opportunities for our kids?
The NEA Foundation funds public school educators to develop leadership skills and improve student achievement.
“They look to fund projects that improve student learning, critical thinking and problem solving,” said Stephanie Dege, recent NEA Foundation grant recipient and ISTA member.
Dege wrote about her experience applying for a Student Achievement Grant in the summer Advocate. Through the NEA Foundation, she funded the Michigan City High School Wolves Environmental Restoration Team, a stewardship team partnering with the Michigan City Parks Department.
“This funding has allowed us to complete environmental work that earned us the 2017 Indiana Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence,” said Dege. “If you are looking to fund a unique project for your school, I highly encourage you to apply.”
