Grants That Promote Equitable and Inclusive Academic Opportunities
NWEA offers Educators for Equity Grants of up to $10,000 to foster growth for students who face systemic barriers to academic opportunities. Proposed programs should be equity-focused, evidence-based, culturally relevant to students served, and explicitly designed to improve academic opportunities and outcomes. The committee will consider the extent to which grant awards will go to program operations versus supplies and materials (including software licenses). Funding is not intended for the primary purpose of purchasing supplies and materials or professional development.
