Education Department Opens Teaching Grant Applications

Program intended to address national teacher shortage.

The U.S. Department of Education announced the establishment of the SEED (Supporting Effective Educator Development) grant program on Thursday. The program funds those who aim to increase education for educators in the United States. Sixty-five million will be awarded to applicants who demonstrate a thorough knowledge of evidence-based practices that help to develop the strong skill sets necessary for “highly effective educators.”

“We know that in order to improve education across the country and meet our students where they are, we must invest in teacher professional learning, recruitment, and retention,” said Education Secretary Cardona. “Building an education system that is the best in the world requires an investment in our dedicated teachers.”  

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. education officials as they seek methods to support teacher education.
  • For Secretary Cardona to seek God’s direction as he oversees the grant program.
  • For American students as they continue to recover from the pandemic disruption of their education.
