The NEA Foundation awards small grants to educators to improve teaching and learning, including investigating teacher-powered school models.
The NEA Foundation: Grants to Educators website says:
"We support new ideas and practices to strengthen teaching and learning. Our goal is to fund and share successful strategies to educate and prepare students for bright and rewarding futures. We have learned that the best teaching methods come from our greatest assets: educators. That is why, over the last 10 years, we have awarded more than $7.1 million to fund nearly 4,500 grants to public school educators to enhance teaching and learning. To build our knowledge base and to uncover new, great practices in public education, we invite all eligible educational professionals to apply for these grants."
