New Grants to Support Teacher Leadership Projects

Last week, at a White House event celebrating National Teacher Appreciation Day, ASCD announced a new Teacher Impact Grants program.

The Teacher Impact Grants, funded by Helmsley and the Carnegie Corporation of New York, will enable teacher leaders to develop and expand leadership projects to transform learning environments and improve student outcomes.

Grants ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 are available to current classroom teachers preK-12. Applications will be received May 16 through June 16 for teacher-led projects implemented during the 2016-17 academic year.
