Next Generation Learning Challenges, $12 Million, Wave IV Breakthrough School for College Readiness
"NGLC’s $12 million Wave IV builds on the 20 new, personalized, blended secondary school models we helped to catalyze through Wave IIIa in 2012. With this new wave of investment, NGLC aims to further catalyze and accelerate the development of the blended learning model in secondary education. Our goal is to enrich the educational landscape with both a larger number and a more diverse portfolio of players innovating with blended learning approaches. NGLC aspires to find entrepreneurs and innovative organizations and agencies that share this urgency and recognize the potential of technology-enabled breakthrough school models to catalyze broad, transformative change across public K-12 education in the United States.
NGLC will award 20 launch grants of $150,000 guaranteed plus up to $300,000 available in 1:1 matching funds and will award 30 planning grants of $100,000 each."
Applications will be accepted in two cycles in 2013, with deadlines of April 22, 2013 and December 2, 2013.
