Advanced Technological Education (ATE) – National Science Foundation (Deadline: October 15, 2018)

With an emphasis on two-year Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs), the Advanced Technological Education program focuses on the education of technicians for the high-technology fields that drive our nation’s economy. The program involves partnerships between academic institutions (grades 7-12, IHEs) and industry to promote improvement in the education of science and engineering technicians at the undergraduate and secondary institution school levels. The ATE program supports curriculum development, professional development of college faculty and secondary school teachers, career pathways, and other activities. The program invites research proposals that advance the knowledge base related to technician education. It is expected that projects will be faculty driven and that courses and programs credit bearing, although materials developed may also be used for incumbent worker education.

Grassroots Organizing for Social Change Program – Ben and Jerry’s Foundation (Deadline: October 15, 2018)

The Grassroots Organizing for Social Change Program offers general or project support to non-profit organizations throughout the United States and is our most competitive grant program. While their broad goals are to further social and environmental justice and support sustainable and just food systems, they focus on the types of activities and strategies an organization uses for creating social change rather than on the specific issues the organization is addressing. They will only consider proposals from grassroots, constituent-led organizations that are using community-organizing and base-building strategies to accomplish their goals.
