GRANT PROGRAMMING

ASSET partners with national foundations and corporations to fund and implement innovative educational programs for educators and students across the U.S. While a majority of educators who participate in ASSET’s programming are funded through their district or employer, ASSET provides pro bono services to hundreds of educators and organizations per year through grant programs and the Access ASSET Scholarship program. In recent years, grant-funded programming has focused on evidenced-based instructional practices, changes in the educational landscape, or special populations. The majority of grant programs are designed to serve under-resourced educators, while some are designed to serve a mix of educators from low and non-low socioeconomic areas.
