The Jewish Education Innovation Challenge (JEIC), sponsored by the Mayberg Family Foundation, is soliciting proposals to pilot innovative educational models in Jewish day schools. The objective is to identify and fund experimentation with new methodologies that foster and reward student effort, enthusiasm and proficiency. To empower educators and administrators to disrupt the status quo, JEIC awards multiple grants up to $50,000 each over two years to programs that represent a paradigm shift in Jewish education. Selected programs must be revolutionary, practical, sustainable, accountable and scalable. Last year, JEIC awarded several grants, totaling more than $130,000. The deadline for the initial Letter of Interest is December 18, 2015. In an unusually transparent grant process, finalists present their ideas at the Foundation’s annual “Innovators Retreat” on June 1st and 2nd 2016 and grant winners are announced in late June.
