  • Funding for Science Teachers


McCarthey Dressman Education Foundation (MDEF)


These grants go to small teams of teachers with plans to develop and implement groundbreaking K-12 instruction. Funds should help teachers integrate fresh strategies that encourage critical inquiry and observe their effects on students. Teachers write and reflect on their projects and share their insights with other teachers. Licensed K-12 teachers employed by public or private schools who have the background and experience to successfully complete the project and are willing to collaborate with the foundation are eligible. Awards for up to $10,000 per year are available for individual teachers for up to three years.
