Teaching of American History
Grant Program

Innovator's Assistant Webcast

Please Note: The following presentations were produced in 2003, but the information is relevant to the 2004 competition. One important change is that the priority for evaluation is an invitational rather than competitive; applicants who address this priority will not receive any bonus points. 2004 grant applications must be submitted electronically; please see http://e-grants.ed.gov/egWelcome.asp.

This webcast provides technical assistance to those applying for a Teaching American History grant. Local Education Agencies (LEAs), including charter schools that are LEAs, partnering with institutions of higher education or nonprofit history or humanities organizations are eligible to apply. Specific questions about this program may be sent to teachingamericanhistory@ed.gov.

This webcast includes:

  • an introduction;
  • overview of the TAH program and tips on writing a successful grant application
  • information about the invitational priority on evaluation; and
  • a grantee's description of a current project funded by this program.

This webcast may also be useful to those applying for other grants, because it describes the grant process and provides definitions that pertain to many grants funded by the Office of Innovation and Improvement. For more information about evaluation, see http://www.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ies/ncee/index.html . To comment on the usefulness of this webcast, contact teachingamericanhistory@ed.gov.
