Fund for Teachers
Fund for Teachers supports educators' efforts to develop skills, knowledge and confidence that impact student achievement. By trusting teachers to design unique fellowships, Fund for Teachers grants validate teachers' professionalism and leadership, as well. Since 2001, Fund for Teachers has invested $33.5 million in nearly 9,000 teachers, transforming grants into growth for teachers and their students.
For the upcoming summer, Fund for Teachers grants will cover learning experiences within the continental United States and Hawaii.
- The online application is now available and closes on January 21, 2021, with award notifications made on March 30, 2021.
- Grant amounts: up to $5,000 for individuals and up to $10,000 for a team of two or more (teams do not have to be in the same school, district, or even state).
Most significantly, Fund for Teachers encourages applicants to focus on topics and issues most directly facing our nation at this time. Our organization was founded on the belief that teachers are problem solvers and community leaders who inspire students towards action. We need this leadership in partnership with our students most urgently in areas such as equity, diversity, inclusion, climate change and civic engagement. Additionally, teachers on the front lines of education see firsthand the challenges facing their students, schools and communities; we welcome fellowship proposals that aim to resolve these issues.
