Number of Grants:

Five awardees are selected for the Horace Mann Awards for Teaching Excellence. One recipient of an Award for Teaching Excellence is selected from the five.

Estimated Size of Grant:

All affiliate awardees receive expenses-paid travel to Washington, DC for the NEA Foundation’s Salute to Excellence in Education Gala in February. Five awardees are selected for the Horace Mann Awards for Teaching Excellence and receive $10,000 each plus expenses-paid travel for themselves and one guest. The NEA Member Benefits Award for Teaching Excellence recipient, selected from the five, receives $25,000 in cash and a commemorative gift.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

All current members of a NEA local affiliate or bargaining unit are eligible, including teachers, education support professionals, and higher education faculty and staff. NEA state affiliates, the Federal Education Association, and direct affiliates may each submit one nomination per year. Only nominations submitted and endorsed by one of these affiliates will be considered. NEAF encourages NEA state leaders to consider awardees that reflect the diversity among NEA members.

Pre-Application Information:

All applications must be submitted on the online application system, which opens November 10, 2021, and closes May 2, 2022.

The Foundation will notify all affiliate presidents and their awardees when Horace Mann awardees have been selected in Summer 2022.

Process:
- Each affiliate determines its own best process, reflecting due diligence, for selecting its awardee. The affiliate submits a single awardee’s name and qualifications to the NEA Foundation. (Each NEA affiliate may nominate one educator for the NEA Foundation Awards for Teaching Excellence.)
- The national selection panel chooses the five recipients of the Horace Mann Awards for Teaching Excellence from among the affiliate awardees.
- The Horace Mann awardees will be invited for personal interviews with the national selection panel in August 2022 and based on these interviews, the NEA Member Benefits Award for Teaching Excellence recipient will be chosen.
