National Science Foundation offers grants to help STEM teachers
from Education Week
The National Science Foundation is offering grants of up to $300,000 each for projects that would help teacher-leaders get more exposure and improve STEM education systemwide. It's seeking ideas now. The submission process ends July 22. Details are laid out here. Proposals may include "novel STEM research opportunities," avenues for teachers to get involved in advisory and mentoring capacities, or international travel for research and education. NSF asks that the ideas be able to be piloted for up to two years. The goals are to find successful models for long-term programs that support teacher-leaders and to help those teachers serve as national resources to improve STEM education.
