Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to USA nonprofit and public schools to remove educational barriers for students. Funding is intended to support students from preschool to 12th grade who are facing systemic barriers to educational opportunities. The program is intended to better support students and help eliminate inequity in education.

When evaluating applications, the selection committee will consider the following:

  • Populations served: Extent to which the program supports students who face systemic barriers to academic opportunities, including students who identify as Black or African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, or Asian/Pacific Islander; students learning English and speaking a language other than English fluently; and students experiencing economic disadvantage
  • Evidence base: Justification of an evidence-based, high quality program focused on facilitating the academic development of students
  • Equity mission: Alignment with the priority to remove systemic barriers to academic success for economically disadvantaged students and/or students of color
  • Cultural relevance: Evidence of culturally relevant fit of the program based on the community/populations served
  • Academic focus: Explicitly focused on improving academic opportunities and outcomes for students served

The committee will also consider the extent to which grant awards will go to program operations versus supplies and materials (including software licenses). In addition, it is important to note that an applicant’s use of NWEA products and services will not be taken into account in selecting grant recipients.
