Apply for an Active Learning Center Grant from Steelcase Education

Calling all innovative educators and educational institutions: Steelcase Education seeks partners in active learning who are ready to use their physical classroom space to advance learning in new and important ways. 

Steelcase has a passion for understanding how learning takes place and how smarter, active learning spaces can help. That’s why we’re launching a new grant program that will fund and research up to 15 Active Learning Centers each year.

Each Active Learning Center grant will cover the furniture, integrated technology, design, installation and post-occupancy evaluation for one of three classroom types designed for 28 to 32 students. Eligible classrooms must be in the United States and Canada, serving grades 6–12 or within a college or university. Grants are valued between $35,000 and $50,000, plus all of the innovation and inspiration born of active learning.

Interested in sparking new learning in your classroom by leveraging the power of place? Apply for an Active Learning Center grant using our grant proposal template and guide. Submissions must be received by February 27, 2015, and grant recipients will be contacted by April 15, 2015.
