Toshiba STEM grants for K-5

  • 1.  Toshiba STEM grants for K-5

    Posted 09-13-2021 09:19:00 AM

    The Toshiba America Foundation is accepting grant applications from grade K-5 teachers for innovative science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) projects.

    Grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded to teachers in support of efforts to bring an innovative project to life within their own classroom. Applications must be for project-based learning. 

    The foundation is considering how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected teachers and education and will not presume to suggest how teachers should deal with the obstacles that social distancing and safety concerns place in the way. For now, alternative proposals will be considered contingent upon how, when, and if schools are open as usual. Under the circumstances, the foundation also aims to be more accommodating in considering the kinds of equipment or expenses it can fund.

    Funding is typically directed toward K-12 schools. Educational nonprofits and universities working with K-12 teachers are occasionally considered, but please call the foundation first.

    For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Toshiba America Foundation website.  http://www.toshiba.com/taf/k5.jsp

    Deadline October 1st.
