Teacher Incentive Grant - Request for Proposals 2016-2017


The Montclair State University Network for Educational Renewal is offering the MSUNER Teacher Incentive Grant for the 2016-2017 school year. The purpose of this grant is to encourage teachers to enhance student learning by experimenting with new teaching strategies, explore ways to improve students' math and  literacy skills, develop a class project, etc. This grant is for a teacher who would like to work on a specific short-term project. All you need is an idea. Here are a few examples to start you thinking:
