Active Learning Center Grants Available

Steelcase Education is seeking partners in active learning that are ready to use their physical classroom space to advance learning in new and important ways, so they have established Active Learning Grants. A release announcing the grants states, “we have 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.”

According to Steelcase spokespersons, 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 - 32 students. Eligible classrooms must be in the United States and Canada, serving grades 6 - 12 or within a college or university. The grants are valued between $35,000 and $50,000, plus all of the innovation and inspiration born of active learning.
