The Voya Unsung Heroes program (formerly the ING Unsung Heroes program) annually provides grants to K-12 educators utilizing new teaching methods and techniques that improve learning.

Each year, educators submit applications for an ING Unsung Heroes grant by describing projects they have initiated or would like to pursue. Each project is judged on its innovative method, creativity, and ability to positively influence students.

One hundred finalists will be selected to receive a grant of $2,000 each, payable to both the winning teacher and his or her school. At least one grant will be awarded in each of the fifty states, provided at least one qualified application is received from each state. Of the hundred finalists, three are selected for additional financial awards - $25,000 for first place, $10,000 for second place, and $5,000 for third place.

All K-12 education professionals are eligible to apply. Applicants must be employed by an accredited K-12 public or private school located in the United States and be full-time educators, teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, or classified staff with effective projects that improve student learning.


The application deadline is April 30, annually
