Grants & funding
More information coming in the fall!
CYBER.ORG's technology grant program is designed to support teachers and qualified extracurricular programs to provide cyber education to K-12 students in the United States. Grants are awarded based on the availability of funds, geographic representation, and demonstrated need, with preference for applicants who intend to use CYBER.ORG curriculum materials. Applications will be received continuously, and awards will be made during the first two weeks of September, December, March, and June. Technology offerings include: Science+ Classroom Kits, Boe-Bots, Shield-Bots with Arduino, cyber:bots, micro:bits, US Cyber Range Licenses, Raspberry Pis
The National Geographic Society recognizes that educators, who are among the many dedicated individuals on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, are pioneering new ways of teaching so that students can continue learning.
As educators, you are doing much more than simply adapting your approach in a socially distant and remote learning world. You are pushing boundaries, testing new skills, and advancing learning in profoundly new ways. You’re discovering new solutions to enrich your teaching and help students understand the significance of the moments they are currently living through.
For 132 years, National Geographic has supported innovators and changemakers who have pushed the limits of what is to what could be. The Society has launched an emergency fund for innovative educators who are designing instructional resources — whether in the classroom, teaching remotely, or a combination of the two.
The fund will distribute support ranging from US $1,000–$8,000 to individual educators (or to an individual educator working in collaboration with other educators or National Geographic Explorers) to design instructional resources that help educators effectively teach in remote or hybrid learning environments. Priority for this opportunity will be given to educators working in communities that have been particularly hard hit by the pandemic, and who have not previously received National Geographic funding.
The resources developed via this funding must be scalable across different schools and communities and will be made accessible to all educators through the National Geographic Society website.
This call for proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Applications may be submitted until further notice.
