Fall 2012 Teacher Small Grants Awards Announced
IREX is pleased to announce the recipients of the Fall 2012 TEA/ILEP Alumni Small Grants competition. IREX, in conjunction with an independent selection committee and the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, selected 10 alumni of the Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (TEA) and 6 alumni of the International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP) to receive funding to support their original small grant project ideas.
All alumni of the TEA and ILEP programs are eligible to apply for small grants, which support projects benefitting secondary education in their home countries. Projects are awarded twice a year. Projects awarded this cycle include a car safety project in Uganda, a workshop on technology and creative teaching methods for English as a Foreign Language in Ukraine, a mobile science laboratory in the Philippines, and the launching of a handicrafts cooperative for disabled students in Kyrgyzstan. See below for a complete list of Small Grant awardees and their projects.
Congratulations and good luck to all the grant winners as they begin implementing their projects. The next deadline for TEA/ILEP Alumni Small Grant applications is February 1, 2013.
