The Ellison Education Grants were created to empower and support Washington State’s most effective, innovative and inspirational K- 12 public school teachers. The Ellison Foundation’s goal is to support lifelong achievement and success of Washington State students. It does this by providing support to educators who select and design academic enrichment curriculum for students and or professional learning experiences relevant to their current practice. The Ellison Foundation supports the classroom teacher’s expertise in understanding their own professional learning needs and the needs of their students. The Ellison Foundation has awarded 40 grants and $168,100 in the last three years.
The Ellison Foundation wishes to award at least 10 grants in the Spring of 2020 for the 2020 – 2021 school year. Grant amounts range between $1,000 and $10,000.
