The NEA Foundation is offering $2,000 and $5,000 grants to educators who are NEA members working in public schools or public colleges for professional development activities. Learning and Leadership Grant funds made to individuals may be used to fund conferences, summer institutes, travel abroad programs and action research. Grant funds are also available to groups to fund lesson plan development, study groups, collegial study and action research.
Grant funds may be used to pay for travel, room, meals, registration fees and materials. Educator stipends and substitute fees may be paid by grant funds for group activities.
