Please check your application for compliance with these guidelines. Complete all required information. Assign a fiscal sponsor if desired. Failure to complete any of these items will disqualify your application.
All proposals must be submitted through the NEA Foundation’s online grant system.
Provide a line item budget for the proposed work. Your request must total either $2,000 or $5,000. Identify any additional support (cash or in-kind) that will be provided by other sources, including those provided by your school/district/college/university. Your budget must be in the form of a Word, Excel, or PDF document. The NEA Foundation suggests that your budget be as cost-efficient as possible. Please ensure that all items are directly related to your proposed work, as your budget will be assessed by how realistic, clear, and frugal it is.
The NEA Foundation may allocate a number of grants based in part on geographic considerations.
- Proposed goals for student achievement are challenging and rigorous
- Proposed work engages students in critical thinking and problem solving
- There is alignment between goals, assessment, activities, and budget
- The project is collaborative and can be sustained in future years and/or modeled by other educators.
