SEL in Action Awards

The 2022 SEL in Action Awards Application Window is Open!

For the 2022–23 school year, we are again inviting applications from two applicant pools: 1) School-based educators (including teachers, counselors, administrators and other school staff) seeking to implement SEL initiatives in classrooms or schools in the 2022–2023 school year, and 2) District-level applicants seeking to implement SEL initiatives district-wide and/or across multiple schools within one district (including a charter network).

The RFP, application and details about two informational webinars can be found here. The deadline for applications is Monday, March 14 at 11:59pm PT.

Recipients and Project Descriptions

  • English learners
  • Girls and young women of color
  • LGBTQIA+ students
  • Newcomers, including refugee students or recent immigrants
