Toshiba America Foundation
Toshiba America Foundation Accepting Science and Math Education Project Proposals
Deadline: August 1, 2008 (Large Grants)
The mission of the Toshiba America Foundation (http://www.taf.toshiba.com/) is to promote quality science and mathematics education in U.S. schools. Grants are made for programs and activities that improve teaching and learning in science and mathematics in grades K-12. The foundation focuses its grantmaking on inquiry-based projects designed by individual teachers and small teams of teachers for use in their own classrooms.
The foundation is currently accepting applications for projects for grades 7-12. (Toshiba America Foundation offers a separate program for grades K-6. See the foundation’s Web site for further information.)
The grants program is national in scope. Proposals are welcome from public and private (nonprofit) schools throughout the U.S. The foundation has also made a special commitment to support projects in regions where Toshiba America Group companies have offices.
Decisions about grants of under $5,000 are made on a rolling basis and applications are accepted throughout the year. For grants larger than $5,000, the board of directors approves grant requests twice a year. Applicants should submit their large grant proposals no later than either August 1 or February 1, annually.
