The Pollination Project, in partnership with the Institute for Humane Education, is offering up to 20 grant awards in Fall, 2013, for educators to create projects that support their students in making a positive difference in the world.
We are seeking educators who are committed to bringing forward a just, peaceful, and healthy world through projects that directly promote environmental stewardship, social justice, human rights or animal protection. Before applying, please click here to learn more about humane education and make sure the program is a fit for you.
Applications will be accepted from any educator, at any level (preschool through post-graduate), anywhere in the world, with priority given to educators working in traditionally underserved communities.
THE GRANT AWARD INCLUDES:
- A $1,000 grant from the Pollination Project to launch or expand a social change project in your school.
- Paid tuition in the Institute for Humane Education 6-week online course, Teaching for a Positive Future. (CEUs are available in most states.)
- Peer support from like-minded educators.
- If applicable, additional p/r and media support and visibility for your project.
DEADLINES: Applications are accepted on a rolling basis from June 1, 2013-September 22, 2013. Final announcements will be made on October 1, 2013.
HOW IT WORKS: If you are selected as one of the grantees, you will receive paid tuition in Teaching for a Positive Future, which begins on 10/7/13 and ends 11/15/13. This required course will support you in developing or strengthening an impactful social change project in your school. The course is a rich peer-driven experience where you will receive support and motivation to teach valuable critical and creative thinking skills to address our global challenges.
You will then submit a project outline to the Pollination Project and receive a grant of $1,000 (payable in two $500 installments) to launch it. If there are timely or media worthy milestones in your project, the Pollination Project will provide an additional media support grant to work with Evolotus PR and gain additional visibility for your work. (For an example, see the media generated for Ed Hashey, a Pollination Project grantee who received an additional media support grant from the Pollination Project). Two short reports will be required during the grant period.
