COVID-19 Remote-Learning Emergency Fund for Educators
National Geographic Education has launched a new grant program called the Learning Emergency Fund, which will award at least 50 grants to teachers to adapt or develop remote-friendly curriculum resources that use science, social studies, or geography to teach about pandemics, including COVID-19, or about social or environmental justice. To qualify for the grants, which run from $1,000 to $8,000, teachers need to plan resources that can be used in hybrid or remote environments. National Geographic will share the materials developed under the grant program with teachers nationwide, through its website and on social media. In considering awards for the new grants, National Geographic Education will give priority to teachers in areas hit hardest by the pandemic and those who have not received grants from the organization before.
Deadline: Rolling. Applications may be submitted today until further notice. National Geographic will strive to send out decisions every two weeks.
The US National Parks are the embodiment of a concept emerging from 19th-century democratic ideas to preserve the magnificent natural wonders of the land, making them available in perpetuity. Studying the national parks helps to illuminate these ideas and illustrate dimensions of US politics, economics, and society that resonate today.
