Grants of $2,000 or $5,000 to USA public school teachers, educational support professionals, or staff members at institutions of higher education for programs to enhance student education. Applicants must have a membership with the funding source. Funding may be used for items such as resource materials, supplies, equipment, transportation, technology, or scholars-in-residence.

The NEA Foundation especially encourages grant applications from education support professionals. Education support professionals can be classified as para-educators, school bus drivers, maintenance and custodial staff, food services staff, school nurses and student services workers, clerical and office assistants, school security officers, and technicians.
