Posted by: David Feinauer

Congratulations to everyone on the development and presentation of your MILC lesson plans. Below are descriptions and links for educator grants and teaching awards that you might be interested in. Later this week, I hope to post an additional grant opportunity from an organization that both Dr. Walcott and I are involved with.

AIAA Grant:

Grant for K-12 teachers who develop or apply science, mathematics, and technology in their curriculum. Grant reimburses up to $200 for supplies / equipment. Up to five awards per school per year. Brief application with open deadlines and application reviews every three months.

AFA Grant:

Educator Grant program designed to promote the development of innovative activities relating math and science to aerospace. Brief grant application. $250 award. Applications accepted between August 1 and November 15.

ING Unsung Heroes Awards for Teachers

Awards are given to K-12 educators pioneering new teaching methods and techniques that improve learning. Each year, educators submit applications by describing projects they have initiated or would like to pursue. Each project is judged on its innovative method, creativity, and ability to positively influence students. The awards program selects one hundred finalists to receive a $2,000 award, payable to both the winning teacher and his or her school. At least one award is granted in each of the fifty states. Of the one hundred finalists, three are selected for additional financial awards: $25,000, $10,000, or $5,000. Deadline: May 1, 2006

Butler-Cooley Excellence in Teaching Award:

This program, made possible through the John William Butler Foundation, honors teachers who have demonstrated exceptional dedication and skill in shaping the lives of children and teens through education. The award is open to active primary or secondary school teachers employed by accredited schools for at least five years. Award amount $5000. Deadline: May 1, 2006.

Horace Mann Offers Continued Education Funding

Awards in amounts ranging from $500 to $5000 for educators planning to take classes at a two- or four-year accredited college or university. Must have a minimum of two year's teaching experience. Deadline: May 16, 2006

In addition to the grant / award opportunities I described in the original post, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers sponsors a program with an award of 1-2K. The program is intended to honor collaborative partnerships between pre-college teachers and IEEE-member engineers for successfully providing projects to the students that support the education and curriculum requirements of the school, promote an increase in the math, science and engineering awareness of each participant, and support the educational goals of the IEEE. Both Dr. Walcott and myself are IEEE members. If any of you would be interested in working with Dr. Walcott and myself to develop a student project that could be integrated into your curriculum (any math / science course) and that would be sustainable, please let us know. The e-mail address will reach both of us.
