Grants for Early Career Educators to Lead a Project
The National Geographic Society offers Early Career Grants to help less experienced individuals lead a project. Funding supports the areas of education, technology, research, storytelling, and conservation. Proposed projects should relate to the themes of Human Journey, Wildlife, and Changing Planet. They should also be novel, exploratory, and transformative. Proposed projects may introduce innovative instructional strategies for students at any level and in any location; take proven ideas and replicate them for larger audiences or different geographical areas; or determine what works in, or adds to, the body of knowledge about how people learn. To be eligible, applicants must have less than five years of professional experience in the field of the project’s focus. Awards range from $5,000 to $10,000.
Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in February.
