Special Grants to Educators

The NEA Foundation frequently partners with other organizations to offer grants for projects in specific subject, grade, and geographic areas. Find out if any of our special grants align with the work you’re doing, and apply for these grants through our normal Student Achievement or Learning & Leadership Grant application.

Currently, the NEA Foundation is not offering special grants. Be sure to check back periodically to see if new opportunities are available.

Past Special Grants to Educators

The NEA Foundation – Nickelodeon Big Help Grants are in the form of Student Achievement Grants to K-8 public school educators. The Big Help Grants program is dedicated to the development and implementation of ideas, techniques, and approaches for addressing five key concerns -- health and wellness, education, service, environmental awareness, and bullying.

 

The grants target these five concerns as areas of great promise in helping develop a sense of global awareness in 21st century students that will encourage and enable them to make a difference in their world. Both the NEA Foundation and Nickelodeon are strongly committed to supporting the development of these skills and attributes for America’s students.
