Grant Description

Grants of up to $20,000 to Brookline, Massachusetts groups of public school teachers, administrators, or other staff members. Concept Papers for these grants are due by January 23. These grants are intended to support the efforts of teachers working together with other colleagues to learn and create new knowledge and skills, and to ultimately have a positive impact on student learning.

Projects may address any aspect of professional practice or PSB subject area and may seek to develop and implement innovative teaching practices or pilot new approaches that reflect the latest educational thinking. They also may address pressing issues in education, such as differentiated instruction, technology in the classroom, or closing the achievement gap. Projects related to teaching practice should enhance, but not duplicate, the standard PSB curriculum and programs.

Funds may be used to pay costs such as stipends, consultants, guest lecturers, travel to professional meetings/research sites, books, tuition, subscriptions, duplicating, postage, and/or supplies directly related to the project. Travel outside the USA will not be funded.

The BEF will not approve projects that should be funded more appropriately within the PSB budget. Thus, proposals should not request funds for equipment, textbooks, routine classroom supplies, and regular curriculum development.
