Grant Program Seeks Project-Based Learning Ideas

The current round of grants with a due date of May 1 is for educators in grades 6–12 requesting more than $5,000 for their projects. For those seeking less, the next due date is June 1.

The second round has a deadline of Nov. 1. TAF also offers quarterly grants for grades 6–12 for projects requesting up to $5,000, with due dates of March 1, June 1, Sept. 1, and Dec. 1. There is also an annual program for grades K–5, with an Oct. 1 due date.
