The Joan Ganz Cooney Center invites proposals for the Families Learning Across Boundaries (FamLAB) Spark Grants Program. The goal of the grants program is to identify, support, and promote innovative approaches to help children and youth ages 3 through 12 learn more deeply across home, community, and school settings.
With support from the Heising-Simons Foundation, the Bezos Family Foundation, and the Oath Foundation, the initial phase of the program will provide grants to US-based non-profit organizations and educational institutions to undertake innovative research and development (R&D) work, design capacity-building tools, and/or lead community engagement projects. These one-year grants are intended to spur knowledge development and experimentation through multi-sector collaborations (which may include for-profit organizations), including the launch of a network of leaders who will exchange best practices and plan future activities. The grants will range from $15,000 to $25,000, and so we are encouraging applicants to consider this opportunity in conjunction with their ongoing or future funded project work. These grants could help you stretch your investments even further (see Section F of RFP).
The FamLAB Spark Grants Program is an important element of the national FamLAB Initiative, which is led by a consortium of education, communications, and policy experts from the Cooney Center, Stanford University’s Technology for Equity in Learning Opportunities (TELOS) Initiative, the Steinhardt School of Education at New York University, the FrameWorks Institute, and PBS KIDS. More information about the FamLAB Initiative can be found here.
