Grants to Alaska indigenous organizations for projects to enhance the education of the indigenous population. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Preference will be given to applicants with proposals that address remote learning due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and target certain subgroups for remote learning.
Purpose of Program: The purpose of the ANE program is to support innovative projects that recognize and address the unique educational needs of Alaska Natives. These projects must include the activities authorized under section 6304(a)(2) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (ESEA), and may include one or more of the activities authorized under section 6304(a)(3) of the ESEA, including, but not limited to, curriculum development, training and professional development, early childhood and parent outreach, and enrichment programs, as well as construction.
Background: The ANE program serves the unique educational needs of Alaska Natives and recognizes the roles of Alaska Native languages and cultures in educational success and long-term well-being of Alaska Native students. In light of the disparities in remote learning infrastructure exposed by the widespread school closures caused by the novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID–19), the need for students across the country, and low-income students in particular, to have access to high-quality remote learning is particularly acute. Thus, for this competition, the ANE program gives competitive preference to applicants whose proposals address remote learning and target certain subgroups for remote learning. Specifically, the competitive preference priority solicits applications that propose to provide reliable high-speed internet, devices, and software applications to learners who previously did not have access to such technologies. In addition, the competitive preference priority encourages applications that include providing high-quality remote learning for Native American students.
Absolute Priority: Eligible applicants must design a project that:
Competitive Preference Priority: Building Capacity for Remote Learning. Under this priority, an applicant must propose a project that is designed to address both of the following priority areas:
