What is the Social Innovation Award?

Teach For America's Social Innovation Award is an annual competition managed by Teach For America's Social Entrepreneurship & Innovation Team that brings alumni and corps member entrepreneurs together to compete for seed funding and collaborate on their ideas.

The Award is intended to spark bold, new innovations that expand opportunities for students in low-income communities and address the root causes of educational inequity.

The award is a critical component of Teach For America's broader innovation strategy and recognizes alumni whose work exemplifies innovation, leadership skills, and transformative impact and sustainability.
