Grants for Bringing Innovative STEM Projects to Life
Do you teach in a middle school or high school? Do you have an innovative idea for improving STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) learning in your classroom? Is your idea project-based learning with measurable outcomes? What do you need to make learning STEM subjects engaging for your students? With a Toshiba America Foundation grant, teachers in grades 6–12 can bring their best new teaching ideas to life. Middle school and high school teachers are invited to apply online for a grant of up to $5,000, or more than $5,000 (on different timeline), to help bring an innovative project into their classroom.
Deadlines: Quarterly (March 1, June 1, September 1, and December 1) for requests of less than $5,000; twice a year (May 1 and August 1) for funding greater than $5,000
