Our new Grant Assistance portal provides the support you need to apply for grants. Click here to visit. This post looks at the U.S. Department of Education and Teacher Planet.
The U.S. Department of Education
The U.S. Department of Education’s website has recently been streamlined under the Obama Administration, and now combines interactive tools and social media to give students information on debt repayment, consolidation and forgiveness. In addition, students can view education funding options and even apply for them directly from the site. Educators can also peruse federal grants (e.g., School Improvement Grants, ELA, etc), national education reforms (e.g., American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, No Child Left Behind, etc), policy changes, education statistics and other federal programs and resources.
Teacher Planet offers educators a free, user-friendly, online resource to search available federal and private grants. In addition to their grant search tool, Teacher Planet also provides a wealth of free information including: teacher tips, downloadable rubrics, worksheets, lesson plans and more. Educators can subscribe to receive frequent updates on grants, freebies and weekly blogs via email.
