Grant Description
Grants of up to $10,000 to New Jersey local education agencies to provide advanced placement courses that include African American studies. Applicants must complete the required registration before applying. Funding is intended for teacher training programs; the acquisition of resources and materials; enrichment opportunities for students; and testing fees for students in Spring 2024. LEAs serving 9-12 students are eligible.

The intent of the Establishing Advanced Placement African-America Studies Grant is to support local educational agencies (LEAs) to establish a section(s) of the Advanced Placement – African American Studies (AP AAS) course. This competitive grant coincides with The College Board’s recent announcement to expand the current Advanced Placement (AP) course options to include African American Studies. 

As part of the NGO application process, LEAs will submit plans outlining how the anticipated funds will help realize the larger vision for this grant, which aims to yield, at a minimum:

  • 30 teachers across the state formally trained to teach AP AAS;
  • 30 high schools to offer, at minimum, one section of AP AAS in the Fall of ’24; and
  • Approximately 300-600 students enrolled in AP AAS for the Fall ’24 school year.

For expected grant deliverables and outcomes see Page 11 of the Guidelines in Supporting Documents.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
All LEAs serving students in grades 9-12 in New Jersey are eligible for funding if they currently participate in the AP AAS pilot program or intend to open a section of AP AAS in the 2024-2025 school year.
