The Voya Unsung Heroes program provides grants to K-12 educators nationwide with effective and innovative projects that improve student learning. Full-time educators, teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, and classified staff employed by accredited K-12 public or private schools in the United States are eligible to apply. Each year 50 finalists are selected to receive a $2,000 award. Of the 50 finalists, three are selected for additional awards: $25,000 for first place, $10,000 for second place, and $5,000 for third place. All awards must be used to further the projects within the school or school system. The application deadline is April 30, 2021.
