New Resource: STEM Grants & Scholarships Collection
If your school or classroom is in the midst of upgrading its STEM learning programs, then you’ve probably learned one thing quickly – it isn’t cheap. Money doesn’t grow on trees; neither do the supplies and resources needed to make STEM learning engaging. That is, unless you know where to look.
Right now, there are numerous grant and scholarship opportunities geared specifically toward supporting K-12 STEM learning initiatives and programs. Your school can easily take advantage of these funds to pay for new computer science curricula, educational robots, makerspace tools, and so much more.
To help your district sustainably plan its next STEM purchase, our team has compiled a collection of state, national, and private funding sources. In it, you’ll find a wealth of available funding for everything from teacher training and lab equipment to job skills and career readiness programs.
STEM Grants & Scholarships
Need some extra funding to get your school’s next STEM project off the ground?
This collection of public and private funding sources makes it easy to identify funds your district qualifies for, as well as other ways to remain thrifty while enhancing your students’ STEM learning opportunities.
This resource will be periodically updated with new listings, too, so bookmark it and check back regularly to see if your school is eligible for any new K-12 STEM grants.
More CS Funding on the Way
Through the recently-passed SB2374, the Illinois legislature has set aside $3 million to support the development and enhancement of computer science programs in K-12 schools.
These funds will be distributed by ISBE via a competitive grant program that requires districts to outline how they plan to meet Illinois’ new computer science teaching standards.
The application process for these funds is still in development. Stay tuned to LTC social media, join our Computer Science & STEM Community, or contact STEM & CS Program Director Sarah Phelps to be the first to know when applications open.
