Transformative Education Governance
Through our grantmaking, the Nellie Mae Education Foundation seeks to build the capacity of local communities to transform their school systems into high-performing, equitable, student-centered bodies that prepare all learners for college and career. As we have grappled with how to scale, sustain, and spread student-centered learning practices, it has become increasingly clear that we must also consider the critical role education governance plays in this work. We are pleased to release a request for proposals for our Transformative Education Governance Grant Program focused on creating new governance designs and refocusing governance on ensuring equitable access to student-centered learning. Click here to view the RFP. You can view the FAQ here and the RFP informational webinar here. If you have questions about this grant opportunity, please contact Marcos Popovich at
