The grant application process is open to individual CTA members, small teams of educators and affiliated local chapters. Applications can be submitted online fromJanuary 1 through April 30. The awards are announced in June. Detailed grant information can be found on the IFT website - www.Teacherdrivenchange.org - by clicking on the grant link.
Competitive educator grants will be awarded in amounts up to $5,000.
Competitive impact grants will be awarded in amounts up to $20,000.
Grant proposals need to reflect innovative efforts to enhance student achievement. Applications also must specify how the proposed project is strength-based and how it will improve teaching and learning conditions.
