The Longview Foundation funds projects that directly support fostering global perspectives in K–12 teachers and students. The Internationalizing Teacher Preparation program focuses on preparing future teachers, implementing promising practices for internationalizing the education of all preservice teachers, and increasing the number of world language teachers, especially in less commonly taught languages. Interested applicants must first submit a funding inquiry form by email; selected applicants are then invited to submit a full proposal. Grants range from $15,000 to $25,000; however, the Longview Foundation will make fewer grants at the top of this range in 2019.
Deadline: June 13, 2019, for submission of funding inquiry forms
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 April.
The GRAMMY Foundation’s Music Educator Award shines a spotlight on the excellent and impactful work being done by thousands of music teachers across the United States. To be eligible for the award, educators must teach music fulltime in public or private schools, kindergarten through college.
Classics for Kids Foundation works to empower young people to shape positive futures through music, build sustainable stringed instrument music programs, and provide grants for high-quality instruments. The foundation offers matching grants whereby schools and nonprofit organizations raise at least half the funds to purchase the requested number of instruments, using a provider authorized by the foundation or, after discussion with the foundation, an alternate provider of instruments of similar quality.
