Education First


NoVo Foundation, in partnership with Education First and supported by Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, aims to seed teacher-led projects and district-wide projects that foster social and emotional (SEL) skills in students in grades PK-12. Whether you have an idea for a new initiative or want to expand or continue an existing project, we want to hear from you.


We are offering up to $5,000 grant awards for teacher-led SEL projects for the 2018-19 school year. We are also offering up to $25,000 grant awards for district projects that span multiple schools in the 2018-19 school year. The teacher and district applications will be evaluated separately. A district applying for a district award is also eligible to have one or more of its teachers apply for a teacher award, and vice versa.
