Student Inspiration Project
The central goal of the Michigan Department of Education’s Student Inspiration Project is to inspire and motivate children from grades four through eight to commit to and more fully engage with their own education. The project was inspired by research which reveals that student motivation is lacking due to in-and-out of school dynamics. As the state of Michigan continues to address issues of content relevancy and delivery, the Student Inspiration Project will seek to promote projects and programs that give students ways to: 1) accommodate peer pressure by celebrating learning and achievement; 2) have a say in what and how they learn; and 3) authentically discover that they are not alone in their desire to learn.
The Student Inspiration Project will leverage private funds for support. The project accepts donations through the Library of Michigan Foundation. The Foundation provides opportunities for charitable giving to benefit, among other things, special programs and projects otherwise not provided through state or federal funding.
