(Institute of Education Sciences); Program: Alaska Native Education Program (CFDA Number: 84.356A); Eligibility: Alaska Native organizations, nonprofits, schools, school districts and faith or community based organizations; Funding (estimated): $16.8 million for 33 awards was distributed last year (no match required); Deadline: TBA (the NOFA is to be released in May).
