UPDATE: In recognition of the challenges facing teachers at this time, Fund for Teachers will be extending our 2022 grant application deadline to February 24, 2022.
Today Fund for Teachers opens our 2022 grant season with the belief that:
Curiosity Launches Learning.
Since 2001, 9,000+ teachers let curiosity to lead them to new insights, experiences, resources and networks through a Fund for Teachers fellowship. Multiply these teachers by their number of students — over multiple years — and it’s clear how one grant can transform classrooms and careers.
“I like to learn. That’s why I applied to Fund for Teachers in the first place,” said Rashaun James (Columbus, OH). ”I knew I could learn completely differently — try something new — because Fund for Teachers encourages teachers to go out of our comfort zones. So I pursued learning something new that I felt like my kids needed. I went with my students in mind, what I could teach them. But I feel like it changed MY life, as well.” Listen to Rashaun talk about her fellowship and it’s impact here.
Here are some resources for future FFT Fellows to learn more about our grants, as well as resources that can facilitate the grant writing process:
The deadline for applications is Thursday, January 20th, at 5 pm CST. Selection committees comprised of Fellows and donors, as well as leaders from the civic, educational and philanthropic arenas, will then review applications using this criteria. We announce our 2022 FFT Fellows on March 29, 2022.
“Through my own personal growth as an educator, I will now be armed with the resources from authentic experience to support my students. We can only teach what we have truly learned ourselves.” Deanna Roncaioli (Southington, CT)
