Shark Tank has become a big hit at our education conference. In years past, four to five finalists have been selected to present proposals to our panel of Education Scholarship Sharks, who then distributed $10,000 among the project(s). It's always possible that the best proposal might get it all, or it might be divided among projects!
This is a great opportunity to receive feedback from recognized educational experts, understand the kinds of things expert review panels consider, and get funding for a project.
For the 2019 - 2020 academic year, the IEE is also interested in work that promotes respect, teamwork and civility in the learning environment.
How Shark Tank Works
Selected proposal presenters will have ten minutes to make a presentation, with or without PowerPoint slides. After each presenter has answered pointed questions and worked with the sharks, a final proposal or proposals will emerge and be awarded the grant(s).
Details of Submission
