It’s time to make your Moonshot: 2023 grant applications are open

Everything you need to know to apply for a 2023 Remake Learning Moonshot Grant

Does your school or program have a bold idea that challenges the status quo? Are you ready to transform learning for your students, your educators, and your community? The third year of Remake Learning’s groundbreaking grant program has just launched, and now is your chance to apply for funding to make your preferred future of learning become reality. Here’s everything you need to know.

1. Grants of up to $70,000 are available.

This is a grant opportunity intended to help you test out a bold idea for the future of learning. Grants will be awarded to successful applicants with compelling ideas that represent fresh initiatives aimed at shaping the future of learning, rather than expanding upon initiatives that already exist.

2. The deadline to apply is September 15, 2023.

But don’t delay in getting your application started! Give yourself time to refine (or even come up with) your big, bold idea, craft a strong application, seek out the right partners, and attend info sessions—see #5 below. Click here to start your application.

3. To refine your idea, you’ll use the tool of “Futuring.”

The Moonshot Grants application will challenge you to envision your preferred future of learning—what you hope learning will look like in 10 to 20 years in the future.

4. We’ve created a publication about the “Moonshot Mindset” to help you on your way.

Moonshot is our guide to bold and experimental thinking in education. It’s filled with ways to break from the status quo and build a bold, bright future for learning. It also features advice and lessons learned from past Moonshots grantees for a successful mission. Print copies are also available for pickup at Remake Learning events!

5. All applicants are required to attend an information session (even if you’ve attended a workshop in a previous year).

Information sessions will take place on June 1st, August 1st, and September 1st. RSVP for one today.

All 2023 applicants must attend a 2023 workshop! We’re excited to share new workshop content with you.

6. There are some basic eligibility requirements you should be aware of.

To be eligible for a Moonshot Grant, applicants must be:

  1. A registered member of the Remake Learning network (visit Join In to register)
  2. A 501(c)3 organization, school, university, or fiscally sponsored project
  3. Based in one of the following counties:
    • Pennsylvania: Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Mercer, Washington, Westmoreland
    • West Virginia: Brooke, Hancock, Marshall, Monongalia, Ohio, Preston, Wetzel

7. Grant awardees will participate in ongoing cohort workshops.

Each round of Moonshot Grants recipients are part of a cohort with their fellow awardees. You’ll learn from each other, exchange ideas and challenges, and grow together as you implement your bold ideas for the future of learning.

8. We’re here if you have questions.

Applicants can reach out to for assistance as they prepare for application liftoff.
