School Collaboration Grant (open now!)

Schools in Minnesota have long been pioneers of learner-centered innovation, and we are lucky to have such a wealth of expertise in our state.  To support powerful collaboration and learning between schools, MLCN will award grants to pairs of schools that apply together, where the partnership is mutually beneficial.  To apply, schools will be asked to create a Learner-Centered Action Plan where each school improves along at least one of the identified Learner-Centered Principles. If awarded, each school will receive up to $2,000 for the implementation of a learner-centered action plan. It is the intent of the mini-grant that schools co-create their learner-centered action plan with both students and staff as active stakeholders. Up to 8 partnerships will be awarded on a rolling basis.
