Apply Now! Applications for the Advancing Innovation in Adult Education Project Accepted through April 15, 2020

We’re excited to announce a new round of applications for the Advancing Innovation in Adult Education project, funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education (OCTAE). This project is identifying and disseminating innovative practices in adult education that lead to improved learner outcomes. While the project is interested in a range of innovative practices, we are particularly interested in receiving applications related to Integrated Education and Training (IET). High-performing Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA) grantees that are implementing innovative practices in adult education can submit their applications through April 15, 2020.

Innovative adult education practices are new or significantly improved products, services, or processes. Before preparing an application, use the Advancing Innovation Checklist to think about the characteristics of your program’s practice and whether your practice meets the Advancing Innovation project’s definition of “innovative.” To learn more and access the checklist and application, visit the project webpage.
