Call for applications under the 6th Education Inspiration Grant Programme
Together with the School with Class Foundation, we would like to invite you to the 6th Education Inspiration Grant Programme. Read the details, complete the application form and get up to PLN 4,500 for your original educational project!
The experience of the past five editions of the programme has reinforced our belief that every child, regardless of where they were born, should have equal educational opportunities. Every child has a potential and a talent, and a wise, mindful and inspiring teachers can play a special role in discovering it.
Thus, we are kicking off recruitment for the Education Inspiration programme providing primary school teachers with grants for their original educational projects. We wish to show our appreciation with this programme, which is designed to enhance your professional development and enable you to put your as yet unimplemented ideas into practice. We believe that you know your students and their needs best and thus leave to you the choice of project and the space for making your vision come true. We want the proposed activities to engage children and young people at every step of the way, uncovering and developing their potential and interests.
Our call is open to primary school teachers in towns with a population of up to 30,000, working with students in grades 4 to 8. The grant amount for activities under this year’s programme has gone up and is now at up to PLN 4,500.
The recruitment is a two-staged process. Stage 1 will last from 22 August until the first 300 applications are received or until 18 September 2022, whichever comes first. To submit your idea for an educational project, you need to fill in the short online form for Stage 1 of the recruitment process.
The submission of an idea for an educational project must be made by the teacher who would be responsible for its implementation if funding is granted. In the form for Stage 1, the teacher will describe their idea for the project and their experience in working with that method, etc. in a few short questions. At Stage 1 of the recruitment, we want to know your initial concept for the project. We do not want to see fully planned activities yet; these will only be described at Stage 2.
Applications in Stage 1 of recruitment that meet the formal and substantive criteria will be assessed by representatives of the EFC Foundation and the School with Class Foundation. 80 applications will be shortlisted for Stage 2. The results of Stage 1 will be announced no later than 21 September 2021.
For more information about both stages of the recruitment process, how funding is awarded and applications assessed, and for the programme’s Terms and Conditions, please refer to the programme’s website. A list of application form questions is also available on the website to help you prepare to complete your application.
We are looking forward to your submissions!
