U.S. Teachers School Community Grants - Now Open!!

The U.S. Teachers School Community Grants Program provides awards of up to $2,500.00 for projects to U.S. educators who are alumni of the Teachers for Global Classrooms (TGC) program or the U.S. Teacher Exchange component of the Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (TEA) and the International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP). Grants empower U.S. teacher alumni to infuse global education into alumni’s classrooms, schools, and communities, and to create progressive and systemic change in global education at the district and state levels.

School Community Grants are issued to support projects, materials, and collaborative activities that will infuse global education into alumni’s classrooms, schools, or communities.    This award provides up to $2,500 for projects and activities such as virtual classroom collaborations, curriculum development, community engagement, or fieldtrips.  The U.S. School Community Grant Program is now accepting proposals.

Previous grant winners have used funds to (see last year’s winners here):
  • Strengthen and implement sustained global collaboration between their classroom and a classroom in another country through the purchase of shared reading material or small equipment such as a computer camera.
  • Build on existing curriculum activities by providing materials to bring hands-on global context and enhanced learning in the classroom, such as maps, artifacts, instruments, and other supplementary materials.
  • Enhance global curriculum through taking students on a field trip to local landmark or museum with an international theme to embed experiential learning.
  • Purchase subscriptions to international media sources (either online or print subscriptions) to create a global media library.
We look forward to the innovative and creative proposals you will submit. Please let us know if you have any questions!   The deadline for applications is Monday, November 30, 2015.
