Teacher Innovation Grant Application
RequiredRequired Question(s)
VASCD's Teacher Innovation Grant is designed to help bring ideas born at our conference into practice in classrooms and schools in the Commonwealth. Proposals must be submitted online by January 30, 2019. A review process will take place in February, and awards will be announced during the first week of March.

Grants are intended to support both practice and research.  While grant funds may be used for instructional materials or equipment, there is an expectation that the project will have a research question as its focus. Not only should student learning be impacted, but professional learning as well. Applicants should be clear about what they expect to learn about practice, and how they intend to share that learning with colleagues in VASCD.

Questions should be addressed to Laurie McCullough at vascded@gmail.com or to
Ebbie Linaburg at elinaburg@gmail.com.
