Society of Aviation and Flight Educators Invite Applications for K-12 Teacher Grants

The Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) is a member-oriented organization of aviation educators focused on fostering professionalism and excellence in aviation through continuing education, professional standards, and accreditation.

To that end, SAFE is inviting applications for its K-12 Classroom Teacher Grant program. Through the program, four grants of $500 each will be awarded to K-12 teachers to incorporate aviation-themed lessons into the regular curriculum. An individual teacher or a group of teachers from the same school may apply to design an aviation-themed classroom unit or complete an aviation-themed project. For example, a SAFE grant could be used to pay for a bus and admission fees for students visiting an aviation museum, take a field trip to the local airport, buy materials to build a balsa wood glider or model rocket, or fund another type of project with an aviation or aerospace theme.

Any credentialed teacher in a public, private, or charter school or group of teachers from the same school are eligible to apply for a grant. Local STEM coordinators and homeschooling cooperatives may also apply.

See the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
