Toshiba America Foundation accepts applications for grants from teachers of grades 6–12 who are passionate about making science and mathematics more engaging for their students through project-based learning. The foundation strongly encourages projects planned and led by individual teachers or teams of teachers for their own classrooms. Many successful grantees have designed projects that tap into their students’ natural curiosity, enable their students to frame their own scientific questions, and incorporate the expertise of community partners. Science and math teachers in public or private (nonprofit) schools may apply for grants to support classroom science and math education. Afterschool programs, summer projects, and independent study projects are not eligible.
Deadlines: Grades 6–12 grant requests for $5,000 or less accepted throughout the calendar year; Grades 6–12 grant requests for $5,000 or more accepted and reviewed twice a year—May 1 and November 1
