The NEA Foundation's Learning & Leadership Grants support the professional development of NEA members by providing two types of grants, Individual and Group grants. Grants to individuals fund participation in high-quality professional development experiences, such as summer institutes or action research. Grants to groups fund collegial study, including study groups, action research, lesson study, or mentoring experiences for faculty or staff new to an assignment. Grants fund activities for 12 months from the date of the award. Apply online.

There are three funding cycles per year, Winter, Spring, and Summer.
