Fund for Teachers
Since 2004 EL Education has partnered with Fund for Teachers (FFT), a non-profit organization that supports educators' efforts to develop skills, knowledge and confidence that impact student achievement. By trusting teachers to design unique summer professional learning experiences (fellowships), FFT grants validate teachers' professionalism and leadership. Since 2001, FFT has invested $20 million in more than 5,500 teachers, transforming grants into growth for teachers and their students, 428 of those have been to EL teachers. Applicants may receive up to $5,000 for individuals or $10,000 for team fellowships.
The 2015-2016 application process is now open, and proposals are due January 28, 2016. Visit www.fundforteachers.org to learn more and apply, or contact fftinfo@ELeducation.org for support in applying from an EL Education Network school.
