STEM/STEAM Grant Opportunities for Your Classroom

his blog focuses on foundations that provide education grants for STEM. Whether your school has STEM learning opportunities and curriculum or not, check out all these opportunities to find a grant that might fit your school.

I don’t know about you, but it feels like the new school year only started up again last week! But before we know it, Thanksgiving will be upon us – and the first three full months of the school year will be completed.

As they say, time flies!  And priorities change.

Today’s school priorities include, but are certainly not limited to, literacy, active learning, blended learning, integrated curricula, STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math), and STEAM (STEM with the Arts added).  It can be difficult for schools to find funding to incorporate these ideas into their curricula.

To make your search for grant dollars as easy as possible, we’ve researched a few foundations for you that provide education grants for STEM/STEAM. Whether your school has STEM/STEAM learning opportunities and curricula or not, check out all the opportunities below to find a grant that might easily fit your needs.

  1. Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow Challenge is geared to public school teachers, grades 6-12, and provides awards for the best STEAM projects that solve community problems. The deadline to submit the application is November 30, 2016.
  2. The Max and Victoria Dreyfus Foundation awards grants that range from $1,000 to $20,000 in the areas of Math, Reading, Science, and STEM. The foundation provides grants nationwide and deadlines for Letters of Inquiry are November 10, 2016 and May 10, 2017.
  3. The KinderMorgan Foundation directs their funding to educational programs for youth, K-12 in states where they do business. The emphasis is on Math, Reading, Science, and STEM with a deadline date of November 10, 2016.
  4. The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) provides classroom grants up to $250 for STEM programs with an emphasis on Aerospace. There are two deadlines: November 16, 2016 and February 12, 2017. Guidelines are available here.
  5. The Exelon Foundation provides educational funding, with a strong emphasis on STEM. Your school must be in a part of the United States where Exelon does business. Deadlines are rolling. Review their website for more information.

You CAN get funding for STEM/STEAM projects and curricula (if you’re a teacher) or your child’s school (if you’re a parent)!  Let us know if you’ve found and/or applied for other STEM/STEAM grants. We’d love to add them to our list.
