The mission of English Learners Achieving Now is to enrich the quality of services provided to English language learners through research, enrichment scholarships, and family engagement. 


  • Conduct research about effective English learner program design and implementation to increase understanding in the field

  • Provide enrichment scholarships to help ensure equitable access for English learners to participate in a wide range of experiences, including those outside of the classroom

  • Develop parent outreach and support that is responsive to expressed needs of the English learner community


English Learners Achieving Now (ELAN) microgrants increase English learners’ equitable access to experiences beyond the core academics of school. We envision an educational world where every student has access to the tools and opportunities they need for learning and for cultivating their own success.


 Our primary focus is to provide microgrants to help ensure equitable access for K–12 English learners to participate in a wide range of experiences, including extracurricular activities beyond the school day. We specifically target populations that have difficulty accessing resources due to economic or regional obstacles.

Grants Awarded: Making dreams come true!
