The New Jersey Department of Education has awarded Kean University a “Building Teacher Leadership Capacity” grant designed to support beginning teachers and increase the rate of retention in the profession. Dr. Anthony Pittman is the Project Director.
The Kean College of Education, Plainfield Public Schools and Scotch-Plains Public Schools will partner and work collaboratively with novice teachers (years 1-3) to provide embedded inter-district professional development to support the social-emotional health of beginning educators.
This project is unique in its building on strengths of two districts in close proximity from different District Factor Groups (DFGs).


Current Grant Opportunities 

ORSP has implemented a new policy, approved effective October 1, 2015, that all proposal documents must be submitted a minimum of
7 days before the funder’s due date. This internal deadline allows sufficient time to review specific content and formatting requirements and to ensure the budget conforms with the funder’s requirements and with Kean University policies. Proposals that have not been submitted to ORSP by the internal deadline will not be accepted. We recognize there may be instances when this deadline cannot be followed, such as late notice from a sponsor or a collaborator, and will evaluate those proposals on a case-by-case basis.
