Type: Foundations
Source: U.S Dept. Of Education
Program: Investing in Innovation Fund, Scale-Up Grants, Validation Grants and Development Grants
Eligibility: Innovations That Improve Achievement for High-Need Students: All grantees must implement practices that are designed to improve student achievement (as defined in this notice) or student growth (as defined in this notice), close achievement gaps, decrease dropout rates, increase high school graduation rates (as defined in this notice), or increase college enrollment and completion rates for high-need students (as defined in this notice). 2. Innovations That Serve Kindergarten-Through-Grade-12 (K-12) Students: All grantees must implement practices that serve students who are in grades K-12 at some point during the funding period. To meet this requirement, projects that serve early learners (i.e., infants, toddlers, or preschoolers) must provide services or supports that extend into kindergarten or later years, and projects that serve postsecondary students must provide services or supports during the secondary grades or earlier. 3. Eligible Applicants: Entities eligible to apply for i3 grants include either of the following: (a) An LEA. (b) A partnership between a nonprofit organization and-- (1) One or more LEAs; or (2) A consortium of schools.
Purpose: The Investing In Innovation Fund (i3), Established Under Section 14007 Of The American Recovery And Reinvestment Act Of 2009 (ARRA), Provides Funding To Support (1) Local Educational Agencies (LEAs), And (2) Nonprofit Organizations In Partnership With (a) One Or More LEAs Or (b) A Consortium Of Schools. The I3 Program Is Designed To Generate And Validate Solutions To Persistent Educational Challenges And To Support The Expansion Of Effective Solutions Across The Country To Serve Substantially Larger Numbers Of Students. The Central Design Element Of The I3 Program Is Its Multi-tier Structure That Links The Amount Of Funding That An Applicant May Receive To The Quality Of The Evidence Supporting The Efficacy Of The Proposed Project. Applicants Proposing Practices Supported By Limited Evidence Can Receive Relatively Small Grants That Support The Development And Initial Evaluation Of Promising Practices And Help To Identify New Solutions To Pressing Challenges; Applicants Proposing Practices Supported By Evidence From Rigorous Evaluations, Such As Large Randomized Controlled Trials, Can Receive Sizable Grants To Support Expansion Across The Nation. This Structure Provides Incentives For Applicants To Build Evidence Of Effectiveness Of Their Proposed Projects And To Address The Barriers To Serving More Students Across Schools, Districts, And States So That Applicants Can Compete For More Sizeable Grants.
