Exciting news for CivXNow members and colleagues: you may be eligible to receive grant funding through The Educating for American Democracy (EAD) Initiative.
We are pleased to share the announcement that a request for proposals of up to $200,000 to support high-quality history and civic education for students in grades K–5 has been issued.
Building trust in our constitutional democracy must begin at the earliest levels of education and with a focus on supporting all learners. The EAD Implementation Consortium seeks to identify and support pilot projects that address gaps in materials, approaches, and educator development for K–5 students, especially in underserved communities.
The pilot projects could cover a large range of work: lessons, curricular units, and/or curriculum development; professional development (in-service and pre-service); school strategies; district policies; assessments or other student evaluation; state standards documents or other state policies. Projects should enable applicants to either build on existing EAD efforts and/or launch new efforts.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, May 31, 2023, 11:59 p.m. ET
