The Voya Unsung Heroes Awards Program annually provides grants to K-12 educators who are utilizing new teaching methods and techniques for classroom/school projects to improve learning. Educators are welcome to submit grant applications describing projects they have initiated or would like to pursue.
Each project is judged on its innovative method, creativity, and ability to positively influence students. Each year, one hundred educators are selected to receive $2,000 each to help fund their innovative class projects. Three recipients are then selected to receive additional top awards of $5,000, $10,000, and $25,000.
Deadline: April 30, 2017
Applicants must be employed by an accredited K-12 public or private school located in the United States and must be full-time educators, teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, or classified staff with projects that improve student learning.
With over $5 million in awarded grants, the Voya Unsung HeroesTM Awards Program has proven to be an A+ program with educators. The program’s “alumni” have inspired success in the classroom and impacted countless numbers of students!
