Description
Balance the Equation is the first-ever Grand Challenge focused on U.S. education.The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is seeking to disrupt the deeply imbalanced system against this generation - and previous generations - of Black, Latino, English Learners (ELs), and students experiencing poverty in the United States, who we will refer to as priority students, as it relates to their Algebra 1 experience in 7th, 8th, or 9th grade, in-class or online.Submissions are welcome from across the globe for a chance at a Phase 1: Planning and Prototyping grant to develop a pilot study plan alongside our external learning partner, American Institute for Research (AIR). Upon completion of the first Phase, awardees can then apply for a Phase 2: Pilot Study grant. Applicants are encouraged to consider how their solution could benefit from the expertise of two or more organizations in a partnership or combine with emerging or existing in-market solutions. Partnerships representing collaboration with a full-course Algebra 1 or relevant middle grades mathematics series provider are especially encouraged, as this would represent a clear go-to-market pathway. Eligibility This Grand Challenge is open to organizations globally, including non-profit organizations and for-profit companies.
