The AAEE Pipeline Mini-Grant program provides school districts and, for the first time, non-profit organizations with access to mini-grants to launch or fund programs that aim to attract and support more individuals into teaching careers. This is a critical contribution in light of the ongoing nationwide teacher shortages.
We are pleased to announce BenchK12 is the exclusive (and generous) sponsor of the 2022-2023 program.
AAEE will award grants to school district programs within the United States and two non-profit organizations working to address pipeline/teacher shortages. The AAEE Mini-Grant Committee will consider proposals from school districts, individual school programs, and 501(c)(3) non-profits in the United States.
