Educators frequently need outside resources to engage in meaningful professional development due to limited district funding. Through our Learning & Leadership grants, we support 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.
We give preference to proposals that incorporate STEM and/or global competence in their projects.
Two levels of funding are available: $2,000 and $5,000. Grants fund activities for 12 months from the date of the award.
Grants are available to current members of the National Education Association who are educators in public schools or public institutions of higher education. We especially encourage education support professionals to apply.
All proposals must be submitted through the NEA Foundation’s online
grant system. Click on Link to More Info (below) to access online
