Get Help Applying for Education Grants

Posted on June 24, 2014 by Kevin Hogan

After working with, and writing about, educators for about a decade now, I feel comfortable making the assumption that most of you don’t like money. I don’t mean having it of course, but dealing with it as a part of your job—time spent juggling budget requests, fundraisers and other revenue-related tasks—that pull from teaching and learning.

Then there is the grant proposal process, which fits somewhere on the eye gouging list between filing taxes and the DMV. For these reasons, Tech&Learning tries to make the process easier by publishing our education grants deadline calendar every year.

We hope that this resource can help you in several ways.

  • You don’t need to Google anything. We’ve done the research by keeping score of dozens of long-standing grant programs along with discovering many new ones each year.
  • By displaying the programs in a calendar format, preparing for the various deadlines won’t feel so onerous.
  • Gwen Solomon’s no nonsense advice on putting together your proposals should help you bang out the paperwork.

The calendar is published in conjunction with our July special “Money” edition, where we examine how educators and schools can find it, save it and spend it. It will be online and in print in a few short weeks. Speaking for all the editors at Tech&Learning, we hope it helps!
