January 16 is the deadline for 2017-18 program proposals - just 5 weeks away. Funding for adult learning programs is in two streams: the main Program Funding and our Indigenous Funding (Indigenous applicants have already submitted Expressions of Interest and will receive further guidance from Monique Fry). This call is for programming that will run July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018 - please be aware of our new timing. Call Jeannie Finch at 403-266-6444, ext 2 if you have questions.
Major changes (beyond the new timing)
you will now apply and report electronically by email - no more courier fees or rush-hour traffic on deadline day!
Do you admire someone who excels as an adult learner or adult educator?
Is there a learning program or project out there that deserve extra recognition?
How about an extra-ordinary funder?
Consider this opportunity to honour these hard working and enthusiastic people and send in your nomination form for a Life Of Learning Award (LOLA)!
The LOLAs celebrate and honour the contributions and accomplishments in Calgary’s adult learning field. The LOLAs are presented to outstanding educators, programs, supporters and learners to recognize their dedication and spirit. They highlight the value of foundational learning and the differences education makes in our community.
Calgary Learns presents awards in the following categories:
Adult Learner for a learner at a foundational level who loves learning, stands out in his or her efforts to keep learning and inspires others by example.
Learning Champion for an educator/facilitator or program designer who makes a great contribution to community-based adult foundational learning and supports the essential skills development in learners.
Learning Communities for a learning program/project that stands out in innovation, effectiveness and breadth of reach into the adult foundational learning community.
Thanks A Bunch showcases a funder (individual or corporation) whose commitment and financial contribution help support the needs of adult foundational level learners.
