The Longview Foundation for World Affairs and International Understanding supports K-12 education projects exclusively in the U.S. that build global perspectives in teachers and students. The Foundation provides one-year grants focused on increasing global dimensions within K-12 education in the U.S. in the following strategy areas:
The Internationalizing Teacher Preparation area supports efforts to expand preservice teachers’ global knowledge and skills. Preference will be given to teacher preparation institutions that are connected to state or citywide systemic efforts in order to have a greater impact, and to those using online courses for preservice education or professional development.
The Innovations in International Education area supports field-building activities that help address gaps in knowledge or capacity, with particular interest in promoting integration of international content into the state standards setting process, bringing international knowledge and skills to out-of-school time programming, bringing international knowledge and skills to career and technical education, including international children’s literature in literacy building initiatives, and internationalizing U.S. history resources.
Funded proposals should advance the field or impact significant numbers of students. Visit the Foundation’s website to submit the online application.
