Remake Learning Grants

Helping network members transform ideas into action.

Remake Learning offers catalytic grants to support innovative learning projects and practices throughout southwestern Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia.

Moonshot Grants

In 2021 and 2022, 34 Moonshot Grantees received over $2.5 million of funding to build out experimental ideas, test new concepts, and find powerful ways to move the education field toward a new future of learning. These grantees challenged traditional notions of professional development, explored personalized learning in schools by abandoning traditional letter grades, experimented with community-based, multigenerational learning, and more. Meet the grant recipients: 2021 Round 1 and Round 2, 2022 Round 1 and Round 2.

Another round of applications will open in 2023! Check back here or subscribe to our newsletter for updates.

Preferred Future of Learning

Moonshot Grants challenge applicants to envision their preferred future of learning—what they hope learning will look like ten to twenty years in the future. Grants of up to $70,000 are awarded to successful applicants.

Moonshot ideas are experimental, incorporate collaboration, and center equity and justice by supporting learners of color, learners in poverty, learners in rural areas, girls in STEM and/or learners with disabilities.

Compelling ideas will represent fresh initiatives aimed at shaping the future of learning rather than expanding upon initiatives that already exist.
