The International Literacy Association is accepting grant applications to the Nila Banton Smith Teacher as Researcher Grant. This grant supports teacher inquiries related to literacy and instruction. Grant-related studies may be carried out using any research method or approach so long as the focus is on reading/writing or literacy.
Activities such as developing new programs or instructional materials are not eligible for funding unless the activities are necessary for conducting the research. Priority will be given to smaller grant requests in order to support as many teacher researchers as possible.
Funding is available nationwide.
Eligibility: Individual teachers who undertake action research inquiries about literacy and instruction in their classroom. Applicants must be practicing pre-K-12 teachers with full- or part-time classroom teaching responsibilities and members in good standing of ILA.
Award: Up to $5,000
Rolling Deadline: January 15
