Learning and Leadership Grants (The NEA Foundation)

Educators frequently need outside resources to engage in meaningful professional development due to limited district funding. Through our Learning & Leadership grants, we support the professional development of NEA members by providing grants to:

  • Individuals to participate in high-quality professional development like summer institutes, conferences, seminars, travel abroad programs, or action research
  • Groups to fund collegial study, including study groups, action research, lesson plan development, or mentoring experiences for faculty or staff.

Eligibility: Applicants must be teachers, education support professionals, or specialized instructional support personnel and must be current NEA members.

Award: $2,000 or $5,000

Deadline: October 15, 2021
