Call for Research Grant Applications – Notice of Intent 2019-2020 Funding

September 7, 2018

The McDowell Foundation is inviting PreK-12 teachers and other educators to submit a Notice of Intent to begin the grant application process for research projects funded in the 2019-20 school year. Foundation grants provide funding, guidance and release time to support recipients’ project goals and activities.

Prior research experience is not necessary. The Notice of Intent and overall application process assists applicants in developing a meaningful and achievable research project which supports professional development through reflective practice. Grants totaling $85,000 are available.

Applications to the Foundation require a three-step process:

  • Notice of Intent (due November 13, 2018).
  • Draft Grant Application (due January 28, 2019).
  • Final Grant Application (due April 22, 2019).

The Notice of Intent is the first step in the process.  Once the Foundation receives the Notice of Intent the staff can support applicants in developing a full research application.

Please contact the Foundation for more information or to receive printed copies of the Research Call for Notice of Intent document.
