IES Math & Science Learning Acceleration Challenges Applications Now Open

The U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES) invites proposal submissions for the Learning Acceleration Challenges, which seeks school-based interventions to significantly improve student outcomes in math and science. There are two challenges available under the IES Learning Acceleration Challenges. The Math Prize seeks digital interventions to support third through fifth-grade students with or at risk of a disability that affects math performance. The Science Prize aims to address and improve science achievement for middle school students through non-digital, digital, or hybrid interventions. Several cash prizes are available, starting at $25,000, with a grand prize of $500,000 for the Math and Science Prizes. The application deadline for both challenges is Friday, September 30, 2022.
