    All leaders | Deadline: January 7

    The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) has announced the solicitation for application for the competitive 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant.

    Grants will be for $50,000 to $400,000 per year, for a three-year period. Applications are due by Wednesday, January 7, 2015.
