Remake Learning Grants
Helping network members transform ideas into action.
Remake Learning offers small-scale grants to catalyze new and innovative learning projects, both in-school and out-of-school. Remake Learning grants support network members as they build, create, and imagine innovative learning practices and environments throughout southwestern Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia.
Blueprint for Learning
About the Grant
The greater Pittsburgh region has become a national hub for innovative learning. Among the most notable features of the regional learning ecosystem are the many transformations of classrooms, libraries, and other learning spaces. However, there is still much work to be done to share and spread what’s working, while supporting organizational capacity across the field and establishing a regional growth model for innovation in space design.
Blueprint for Learning will provide 16 grants of up to $50,000 to help schools, out-of-school time organizations, early childhood facilities, museums, libraries, and higher education institutions reimagine, redesign, and remake their learning spaces.
