Grant Spotlight: inspirED School Climate Assessment Grant
inspirED, an organization created through a joint effort between Yale's Center for Emotional Intelligence and Facebook, is offering multiple grants of up to $15,000 per district or up to $2,500 per school to promote social and emotional learning and to improve school climate.
The funding is to be used "to identify and support schools and districts in measuring school climate and developing and implementing interventions that ultimately support the overall well-being and success of young people," according to the company.
A total of 30 grants will be awarded. Recipients choose an inspirED vendor, such as Panorama Education, to conduct a school climate assessment. From there, inspirED supports schools by providing "pathways for students and educators to use the [school climate assessment] findings to drive change in their school via access to InspirED website resources" and offers access to an online community "of school climate experts and like-minded educators, administrators and schools to help tackle challenges, share best practices, and celebrate successes."
The application period is open now and closes in less than a month — May 5. Winners will be announced May 30, and payments will be disbursed by July 30.
