Education WeekNearly 50 schools across the country will receive $25 million in funding to help further their personalized learning efforts, Next Generation Learning Challenges announced Wednesday.
The education accelerator launched the Regional Funds project in 2014 in partnership with CityBridge Foundation, The Colorado Education Initiative, LEAP Innovations, New Schools for New Orleans, New England Secondary School, and the Rogers Family Foundation. Funds will be contributed both from NGLC and these local partners.

The program is similar to NGLC’s national grant program in spirit, but the group felt they could provide more localized support to schools by “working closely with local and regional organizations to create networks of schools responding to the same environment of policies and resources,” said Andy Calkins, deputy director of NGLC.
