The submission period for this RFA has expired.

The Ohio Deans Compact released a request for application (RFA) on May 17 seeking applications from four-year institutions of higher education (IHEs) interested in submitting proposals in one or both of the following two priority areas:

Priority Area 1: Development of Inclusive Teacher Preparation Programs Leading to Dual Licensure

Priority Area 2: Demonstration Models to Recruit, Support, Retain, & Sustain BIPOC Educators through IHEDistrict Partnerships

Proposals submitted in response to the new RFA will be due on July 16, 2021 with notification to successful applicants in mid-late August. We anticipate that funded projects would begin on/around September 1, 2021.

In order to be eligible to apply under this competition, IHEs must attend a virtual bidders’ conference, which will be held on May 24 at 10:00 am. Note that while interested IHEs must send a representative to the bidders’ conference, that representative does not have to be the prospective principal/co-principal investigator.

The virtual meeting took place May 24, 2021.

Proposals will be accepted beginning at noon on May 24 through this website and will be considered using a two-phase panel review process.
