Colocation America invites applications for STEM innovation grants

Colocation America is inviting applications for its STEM Innovation Grant, which will award grants of up to $7,500 in support of programs that inspire and encourage Pre-K-12 students to pursue their interest and curiosity in STEM.

Eligible programs and projects will offer students an innovative approach to learning STEM, developmentally appropriate STEM curriculum and/or resources, and activities that support the real-life application of STEM knowledge. Both innovative pilot programs, and long-proven STEM programs around the United States, will be awarded.

In 2022, five grants will be chosen and awarded by five different Colocation America staff members, who will each have $1,500 to reward to their organization of choice. In addition, the STEM grant committee member will award up to 10 grants of between $2,000 and $7,500.

Funds awarded through the grant may be used in the following ways: tools/equipment, stipends for staff, field trips, travel expenses (e.g., buses), curriculum development and/or purchase, and professional development.

Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; and public school districts, private/public elementary, and/or secondary schools with STEM-specific programming.

Letters of intent are due May 13, 2022, and the selected applicants will be invited as finalists, with the application deadline to be July 8, 2022.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Colocation America website.

Deadline: May 13, 2022 (Letters of Intent)
