      Top 20 Education Grants

      Posted by Boxlight on Fri, Apr 15, 2022

      Many educators envision a “dream” learning space where materials, resources, and tools truly enhance the instructional experience for every student. What could that space include? A variety of manipulatives for hands-on learning, interactive displays for dynamic collaboration activities, and STEM equipment like 3D printers to boost creativity. Of course, the “reality” budget doesn’t always align with the “dream” classroom. Educators have learned to look outside of school budgets to acquire the materials needed to keep the fires of learning motivation going. For example, Grants.gov is a valuable resource for finding various federal grants that can be searched by category, funding, eligibility, and agency. Award amounts range, and deadlines vary.

      Posted by Dr. Don Gemeinhardt on Tue, Dec 14, 2021

      Last month, we talked about the status of all the COVID-19 funding and how it has progressed. The situation for many of the states in their effort to obligate funding under all the ESSER (Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief) and GEER (Governor’s Emergency Education Relief) I, II, and III are ongoing. To see the progress of funding allotments and progress by state, district, and for Higher Education, click here: U.S. Department of Education – Education Stabilization Fund. On this site, you will notice a substantial difference among states on how much allocated funding from ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act) each has. In many cases, you will see that the ARPA status in states is below 5% meaning that the application process has not started. In other states, the application phase has stopped but funding has yet to be sent out.
