Grant Description
Grants of up to $1,500 to Utah public school educators and administrators to provide quality learning experiences in the STEM fields. Funds may be used for equipment, project materials, admission fees, or field trip travel. Funding is intended for creative and innovative classroom projects. This grant can also be used by educators to help with school-sponsored after-school programs.

The PreK-12 Classroom grant expands opportunities for idea-sharing and innovation. Utah educators and administrators at Utah public schools can implement innovative new approaches to STEM experiences in their classrooms, with their findings being shared at STEM conferences and awards events. STEM Action Center has funded hundreds of classroom grants over the years, impacting tens of thousands of students. These projects should focus on classroom-level instruction that is unique to the needs of the students.

This grant seeks proposals that are unique and based on individual classroom needs. Reviewers are asked: How are you going to use it in a new, original way?
