We believe that now more than ever teachers need opportunities to look beyond limitations to enrich their practice and engage students in new ways. Therefore, we are very excited to announce that Fund for Teachers will extend 2021 grants to a new cohort of teachers.
For the upcoming summer, Fund for Teachers grants will cover learning experiences within the continental United States and Hawaii.
- The online application is now available and closes on January 21, 2021, with award notifications made on March 30, 2021.
- Grant amounts: up to $5,000 for individuals and up to $10,000 for a team of two or more (teams do not have to be in the same school, district, or even state).
Most significantly, Fund for Teachers encourages applicants to focus on topics and issues most directly facing our nation at this time. Our organization was founded on the belief that teachers are problem solvers and community leaders who inspire students towards action. We need this leadership in partnership with our students most urgently in areas such as equity, diversity, inclusion, climate change and civic engagement. Additionally, teachers on the front lines of education see firsthand the challenges facing their students, schools and communities; we welcome fellowship proposals that aim to resolve these issues.

The national spotlight continues to illuminate our teachers’ passion, dedication, and determination to reach and teach children. Fund for Teachers has never been more proud to advocate for these first responders and looks forward to empowering preK-12 educators from public private and charter schools with opportunities to recharge for an even greater impact and create opportunities for students to be changemakers in their communities.
