Humane Education Mini-Grant for Teachers
Congratulations to New York 6th-grade teacher Nicole Martin, winner of the 2011 Humane Education Mini-Grant.
We're now accepting applications for the 2012 Humane Education Mini-Grant, designed to fund innovative humane education opportunities in K-12 classrooms.
All certified K-12 teachers in the U.S. are eligible for the grant.
A maximum of $1,000 will be awarded to finance each classroom project. The number of grants awarded varies from year to year, depending on the amount of the funds being requested by applicants. Typically, 1-2 grants will be awarded each year.
The applications are judged according to a rubric which emphasizes humane education components, innovation, clarity of objectives and standards-based work, possible service-learning components, replication feasibility, evaluation methods, and cost effectiveness. Applicants are encouraged to include as much detail about the above components as possible in their application.
At the end of the academic year, teachers who receive grants are required to report on the outcome of the funded projects. Funds must be spent during the school year in which the teacher receives the grant. A final expense report will be required and periodic updates may be conducted.
Before completing your grant application, please review the rules and guidelines. Applications are due by November 30, 2012.
