Funders and Partnerships

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Educurious is extremely grateful to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for their generous funding. We are pleased to be the recipient of two grants, the first for proof-of-concept of our innovative model and the second for substantive research and development to create our next generation high school solutions. Their strong leadership and ongoing support of innovation that can improve U.S. K-12 public schools has been instrumental to our work.

Washington Women’s Foundation

Educurious thanks the Washington Women's Foundation for their Merit Award in support of our goal to create the education that our students and our country need to thrive. The mission of Washington Women’s Foundation is to educate and expand the number of women engaged in philanthropy, and to build and strengthen community through individual and large impact grants. The Foundation’s members, now more than 500 strong, have invested $13 million of their own resources in nonprofit organizations in the last 18 years.

Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation

Educurious appreciates the generosity of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation in providing a grant to continue our work to foster collaboration among students, teachers, and experts through our Expert Network. Among its areas of interest, the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation invests in reform efforts within and outside of U.S. school systems that improve educational opportunities and outcomes for all students. By investing in the education reform movement and its leaders, the Foundation does its part to better prepare today’s learners to be tomorrow’s qualified workforce and engaged citizens.

The University of Washington Institute for Science and Mathematics Education

Educurious collaborates with faculty and researchers from the Institute for Science and Mathematics Education (ISME) at the University of Washington to develop our courses. ISME creates partnerships to envision, cultivate, and study equity-oriented educational practices in areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Guided by three core commitments, ISME works to:

  • Create and maintain deep, mutually beneficial collaborations among STEM educators, STEM disciplinary experts, learning scientists, and community organizations.
  • Build educational practice upon the strongest research-based accounts of STEM learning and teaching as it occurs in formal and informal environments.
  • Challenge itself, its partners, and the STEM education communities to transcend long-standing patterns of inequity in STEM learning.
