The Educational Advancement Foundation


The human mind is like an umbrella, it functions best when opened.

The Educational Advancement Foundation is a 501(c)3 philanthropic organization that supports (1) the development and implementation of inquiry-based learning at all educational levels in the United States, particularly in the fields of mathematics and science, and (2) the preservation and dissemination of the inquiry-based learning methodology inspired by Dr. R. L. Moore (1882-1974), famed professor of mathematics at The University of Texas at Austin.

Headquartered in Austin, Texas, the Educational Advancement Foundation supports grants of various amounts in line with its mission. For additional information on Dr. R. L. Moore or the inquiry-based learning methodology, please go to the Legacy of R.L. Moore website.
