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.
