DOE Investing in Innovation Fund (i3) Grant Opportunity

The U.S. Department of Education’s Investing in Innovation Fund (i3)provides competitive grants designed to encourage programs that boost student achievement and college readiness, improve science education, turn around low-performing schools and support teacher/administrator effectiveness. The 2011 i3 grant program will provide up to $150 million in funding to support “innovative approaches” to school reform that propose to improve student achievement and attainment, and boost engagement in learning. This year’s recipients will be awarded grants ranging from $3 million to $25 million, depending on type of grant awarded.

Applications for the 2011 round of funding are due August 2, 2011, although the Department of Education has posted a notice “strongly” encouraging applicants to provide notification of their intent to apply by June 23 through a simple online form.
There is an opportunity to learn all about this on June 24 in San Francisco from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (Pacific Time)
