ING Awards

ING awards $240,000 every year to K-12 Educators through the ING Unsung Heroes® grant program

Are you a classroom hero?
As an educator, you’re well aware of the difficult challenges you often face in the classroom today. Keeping students motivated and away from outside distractions while dealing with shrinking budgets, larger classes, and limited resources takes dedication and creativity. The ING Unsung Heroes® program recognizes teachers who make a difference by finding ways to take teaching to new heights and make learning fun.

Initiated by ING in 1995, the ING Unsung Heroes program invites educators to submit applications describing projects they have initiated or would like to create. Their applications are judged on their innovative teaching methods, creativity, and ability to make a positive influence on the children they teach.
