The National Education Association Foundation Supports Professional Development Opportunities for Educators.

  Grant Amount: Grant amounts range from $2,000 for individual projects to $5,000 for group projects.


The National Education Association (NEA) Foundation supports educators, both individuals, and groups, in their efforts to take advantage of professional development opportunities. Grant funds can be used for travel, room, meals, registration fees, materials, etc. for individual grants. For group grants, funds can be used for educator stipends, substitute fees, materials, travel, meals, etc. Grant funds cannot be used to pay indirect costs, grant administration fees, salaries, conference fees for more than one person, or lobbying or religious purposes. Through its Learning and Leadership program, the foundation awards grants to public school teachers, public education support professionals, and/or faculty and staff at public institutions of higher education for participation in high-quality professional development experiences such as summer institutes or action research. It also awards grants in support of group projects related to collegial study, including study groups, action research, lesson study, or mentoring experiences for faculty or staff new to an assignment. Preference is given to proposals that incorporate STEM and/or global learning into projects.


To be eligible, applicants must be a public school educator in grades pre-K-12, public school education support professionals, or faculty and staff at public higher education institutions and have NEA membership. The foundation encourages applications from education support professionals.
