The CTA Institute for Teaching has established a competitive grant program for CTA members and chapters to support strength-based, teacher-driven reform for students and public schools.
The grant application process is open to individual CTA members, small teams of educators and affiliated local chapters. Applications can be submitted online from January 1 through April 30. The awards are announced in June. Detailed grant information can be found on the IFT website - www.Teacherdrivenchange.org - by clicking on the grant link.
Competitive educator grants will be awarded in amounts up to $5,000.
Competitive chapter grants will be awarded in amounts up to $20,000.
Applications need to reflect innovative efforts to achieve school & district reform and be strength-based and teacher-driven. Applications also must specify how the proposal is strength-based, how it will improve teaching and learning conditions and how student outcomes will be improved.
