Celebrating the International Day of Education

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed today, January 24 as International Day of Education in celebration of the role of education for peace and development.

From our colleagues at the Burroughs Wellcome Fund: The Student STEM Enrichment Program (SSEP) is now accepting proposals. SSEP awards provide up to $60,000 per year for three years for the creation and implementation of after-school, weekend, or summer STEM programs. The program is open to any North Carolina nonprofit, but we strongly encourage partnerships and collaboration among organizations targeting underserved and underrepresented communities. The deadline to apply is April 15, 2020.  To learn more about the program and to apply, please visit

These are the sources EdNC checks every day: The New York Times, The 74, Education Week, The NC Tribune, The Insider, The News & Observer, The Charlotte Observer, WUNC, WFAE, Brookings, Education Commission of the States, and DPI’s News. A cross section of diverse sources are checked weekly and monthly. If you have an article you think needs to be included, email [email protected].
