Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $8,000 to USA, Canada, and International educators to design resources for instruction during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Funding is intended for the creation of resources in one of the following areas: science, geography, and social studies. The Society has launched an emergency fund for innovative educators who are designing instructional resources — whether in the classroom, teaching remotely, or a combination of the two.

Priority for this opportunity will be given to educators working in communities that have been particularly hard hit by the pandemic, and who have not previously received National Geographic funding.

The resources developed via this funding must be scalable across different schools and communities and will be made accessible to all educators through the National Geographic Society website.

Details:

  • Use the power of science, social studies, and/or geography to help students understand the challenges and impacts of pandemics such as COVID-19
  • Use the power of science, social studies, and/or geography to help educators teach social and/or environmental justice
  • Adapt one of National Geographic’s science or social studies units for elementary, middle, or high school audiences to address curricular needs and for use in a hybrid learning environment and develop a teacher’s guide accordingly
  • Draw on the concepts and pedagogy in the National Geographic Learning Framework or the National Geographic Geo-Inquiry Process to design instructional resources or projects that meet the goals of this opportunity
  • Design innovative methodologies and practices for science, social studies, and/or geography teaching and learning in a hybrid environment
  • Design innovative ways to bring the world to students and help them bridge their personal experiences to a more global perspective on critical issues (e.g., pandemics, social or environmental justice, racial justice, sustainability, climate)

Applicants may use up to 100 percent of their budget as compensation for the time they devote to the proposed project, as well as the time of any co-creators.
