The Foundation works to strengthen teaching and learning in the arts and sciences through grants that support concrete changes in curriculum, pedagogy, and faculty professional development that ultimately improve and enliven the educational experience of undergraduate students.

Grants in this fiscal year were made nationally to colleges and universities, higher education consortia, and other relevant organizations under our "College-Community Connections," "Cornerstone: Living for Learning," "Education for American Civic Life" "Knowledge for Freedom," and "Pathways to the Liberal Arts" initiatives, special projects, which included Emergency Relief funding. We also convened our grantees and field experts to help ensure that our grantmaking is responsive to their needs and that our grantees have an opportunity to learn from each others’ good work.

*Note: The following grants reflect those issued during fiscal year 2020 (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020).
