Grants of up to $3,000 to Ohio Pre-K through twelfth-grade teachers and administrators working in secular primary or secondary schools for programs that promote in-depth learning.

Examples of Deep Learning include:
- Reading critically
- Incorporating multidisciplinary learning
- Solving problems
- Creating goals and devising strategies to achieve those goals
- Applying learning by completing a project
- Refining debate and research skills
- Communicating effectively both orally and in writing
