"Grants for Tolerance Programs"

Teaching Tolerance offers grants for programs that engage collaboration between educators, researchers, parents/guardians and student groups that aim to equalize students' experience in schools. Teaching Tolerance Grants have funded Peaceful Playgrounds Programs in past competitions.

Such programs might include equitable discipline policies and practices; consistent educational experience for migrant, homeless or foster-care students; special education advocacy, with emphasis on parent and students' rights; prejudice reduction efforts in racially isolated schools; and equitable school assignment plans.

Maximum Award: $10,000. Eligibility: educators, researchers, parents/guardians and student groups. Deadline for Letter of Inquiry: May 15, 2008.
