Grant for Conducting Research Inquiries in the Classroom

The International Literacy Association’s (ILA) Teacher as Researcher Grant supports teachers who conduct research inquiries in their classrooms and show outstanding leadership in translating theory and current research into practice in developing content-area literacy. Teacher as Researcher studies may be carried out using any research method or approach as long as the focus is on reading and writing, or literacy. At completion of the study, the grant recipient must disseminate the research findings in the form of an article or a presentation at the ILA Annual Conference. Activities such as developing new programs or instructional materials are not eligible for funding unless these activities are necessary for conducting the research. All applicants must be members of the ILA and practicing preK–12 teachers with fulltime or permanent halftime teaching responsibilities (includes librarians, Title I teachers, classroom teachers, literacy coaches, and resource teachers). Classroom teachers are given preference. Applicants may apply as a collaborative group or individually. Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded. Interested applicants will find this grant opportunity on GetEdFunding, a free database sponsored by CDW•G of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
