This is a friendly reminder that STEM Education Grant applications are due by October 12, 2016. This is a new, one-time initiative to provide support and bolster STEM programs and activity in the City of Flagstaff.

BBB logo hi resIn spring 2016, the Mayor and Council for the City of Flagstaff voted to approve new funding for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education initiatives that fit into the larger goals of the Art & Science Fund grant program. These funds are earmarked for initiatives and/or organizations that strengthen Flagstaff STEM education programs for K-12 youth. Services that bring STEM experts into the classroom and into the community are encouraged.

Partnerships and collaborations are strongly encouraged. Proposed initiatives should go beyond a single school or classroom, helping to make K-12 STEM education available to the residents of the greater Flagstaff area. Especially encouraged are efforts that provide or strengthen STEM initiatives in both public and charter schools. Applications that propose services limited to a single school, or a single type of school (for instance, only charter schools), will not be considered.

The Arts Council invites Flagstaff-area non-profit organizations, government entities, school districts, and/or K-12 charter schools to submit proposals for STEM education activities taking place in the immediate Flagstaff area between January 1, 2017, and June 30, 2018. Applicants should be conducting STEM-related activities during most of this time period, rather than producing a single event or isolated program that occurs during the period.
