Education First will award two to four grants of $50,000 to $100,000 each to districts, charters, and their partners to design and host a convening in their region by the end of the 2020 calendar year. Selected applicants will receive technical assistance from Education First during the design phase of their grant. Awardees will have the opportunity to participate with a group of national SEL practitioners, experts, and advocates at the SEL in Action Convening in 2020.
