Teacher Can Win Support for Prep Programs

grantsFunder: Longview Foundation; Opportunity: Teacher Preparation Grants (2016); Funding Focus: K-12 education; Geographic Focus: National; Eligibility: 501(c) (3) nonprofits; Funding: Awards up to $30,000 each; Deadline: June 6.

Summary: Grants help teachers and their students to effectively engage with people around the corner and around the world.

The Internationalizing Teacher Preparation grants will support efforts to expand teachers’ global knowledge and skills. Preference will be given to those teacher preparation institutions that are connected to state or citywide changes in order to have a more systemic effect and to those using online courses for pre-service education or professional development.

Proposed projects are reviewed with particular attention to: partnerships and collaborative activities between institutions to further ensure impact and sustainability; integration of global dimensions into pre-service teacher education, both in pedagogy and subject matter;  financial support for continuation of activities beyond the grant period to assure sustainability; clear commitments to work with the relevant state education agency and/or local school districts; and dissemination plans to encourage replication at other institutions.

Note: The foundation is interested in supporting activities that have other sources of funding and can demonstrate sustainability beyond the grant period.
