An exciting opportunity exclusively for Austin ISD classrooms and campuses, Innovation Grants are designed to encourage, facilitate, recognize and reward innovative and creative instructional approaches to the accomplishment of learning objectives. At Austin Ed Fund, we believe that often the most transformational educational ideas come from our teachers, students, and administrators—and we also recognize that there is typically not room in the campus budgets to make these ideas a reality. This is where funds we raise from the greater community can have a transformational impact.
Since Fall 2015, Austin Ed Fund has awarded $200,000 to 47 creative teacher-generated projects in three separate grant cycles. Take a look at the 2017 grant recipients to see what kind of innovative projects were awarded in the past.
Austin Ed Fund will award its fourth round of Innovation Grants in Spring 2018. The application will be accessible starting in February 26th, 2018, and the deadline for this cycle is April 6th at 5 PM.
