The NEA Foundation supports a variety of efforts by teachers, education support professionals, and higher education faculty and staff to improve student learning in the nation's public schools, colleges, and universities.

  • Learning & Leadership Grants: provide opportunities for teachers, education support professionals, and higher education faculty and staff to engage in high-quality professional development and lead their colleagues in professional growth. The grant amount is $2,000 for individuals and $5,000 for groups engaged in collegial study. Application deadlines are February 1, June 1, and October 15.
  • Student Achievement Grants: provide $5,000 to improve the academic achievement of students by engaging in critical thinking and problem solving that deepen knowledge of standards-based subject matter. The work should also improve students' habits of inquiry, self-directed learning, and critical reflection. (These grants replace the Foundation's Innovation Grants program, which has been discontinued.) Application deadlines are February 1, June 1, and October 15.

Throughout the year, the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation assists in the funding for public school music programs across the U.S.

  • The Melody Program is designed to provide musical instruments and instrument repair to existing K-12 school music programs that have no other source of financing to purchase additional musical instruments and materials. 
  • The Special Projects Program helps before and after school music programs for schools that do not have a music program that takes place during the regular school day. 
  • The Michael Kamen Solo Award helps outstanding student musicians enrolled in grades 8 - 12 who cannot afford to obtain an appropriate instrument.

Applications are made available by invitation only.  Visit Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation website at www.mhopus.org to see if your program meets the criteria and complete a prequalification form.
