Grants for Teachers Working with Refugee Students: DEADLINE FRIDAY APRIL 21

Education First is seeking applications for teacher-led projects that foster social-emotional skills in students in grades PK-12. Education First is seeking proposals that specifically support students who are new arrivals (such as refugees) or immigrants and English language learners.  After a successful inaugural year in 2016, Education First is continuing the Innovation in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Awards for a second year as part of our work with NoVo Foundation and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. They will award up to $5,000 to individual teachers or groups of teachers to implement the project in their classrooms and schools in the 2017-18 school year. Awardees will also have the opportunity to present their work to a group of national SEL practitioners, experts and advocates at a convening in October 2017.

New this year, Education First is also looking for applications from districts and charters to support social-emotional learning in students grades PK-12. We will award up to $25,000 per year for applications selected for district-wide work.

Please forward widely to your networks locally and nationwide – Education First is hoping to fund the best practices and ideas in classrooms, schools and districts and provide support where it is needed most. The RFP and application materials can be found here. The deadline for applications is Friday, April 21 at 11:59pm PT. If you’d like to read about last year’s winners, the full list can be found here.
