It is well known the United States ranks much lower in science and math education outcomes than many other countries (Pew Research Center, 2017). As a result, government entities, national organizations, businesses, and private foundations are investing funding for teacher professional development so today’s educators can better train tomorrow’s innovators in the fields of science and math. Below is just a sampling of the myriad of grants available for professional development for science and math teachers.

General STEM Professional Development Grants

The National Education Association (NEA) Foundation: Learning and Leadership Grants

Though the NEA Learning and Leadership Grants are offered to teachers in any field, at present the NEA states it will give preference to teachers who seek funds to travel to professional development events for STEM fields or “global competence” improvement. Applicants must be current NEA members working at a public institution, and either groups or individuals may apply. In additional to educational groups and teachers, other educational professionals—such as bus drivers, custodial staff, and food service staff—are also encouraged to apply. Awards are for either $2,000 or $5,000, and there are three deadlines each year: February 1st, June 1st, and October 15th.

U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science: Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship

This grant / fellowship provides funding for K-12 teachers to gain real-world professional development by working at a Federal agency or Congressional office for eleven months. Participants have the opportunity to affect national education policies while learning valuable information about the latest innovations in their educational fields. To be eligible, teachers must be U.S. citizens who are currently employed as a STEM educator at a U.S. public or private school. Additionally, all applicants must have at least five full years of STEM teaching experience. For the full eligibility requirements, see the Eligibility section of the FAQs.  The application period is typically mid-August to mid-November, and this year’s deadline for the 2019-2020 term is November 15th, 2018.
