K-12 STEM Grants

Idaho National Laboratory invites eastern Idaho K-12 educators from regions 5 and 6 to apply for the INL STEM Impact Grant.

INL strives to build Idaho’s workforce of tomorrow by empowering teachers, who in turn motivate students. To support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) within eastern Idaho, INL provides funding to educators and schools to foster opportunities to increase the K-12 STEM learning environment, knowledge and awareness.

This $15,000 grant will be awarded to a team of educators. Partnering with community, business or industry is encouraged.

The grant will provide full or partial support for an innovative, collaborative and sustainable STEM project that will integrate any STEM concepts into the classroom and have demonstrable impact on eastern Idaho students.

This grant can be used to fund training, materials and supplies, educator stipends, or other resources related to completion of the project.

To apply, please download and complete the PDF application below. A complete application package will consist of this PDF form, an itemized budget, and the required W-9 and tax determination letter. Complete applications should be emailed to Brenda Greenhalgh at brenda.greenhalgh@inl.gov by 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16. Questions can be directed to Brenda by email or at 208-526-9399.

A recipient will be chosen on the basis of the overall impact of the proposed project and its alignment with grant requirements as described in the rubric. The recipient will be notified by Dec. 1. This grant will be awarded at INL’s annual Holiday Reception on the evening of Dec. 5, 2018, and at least one winning team member should be available to attend.

INL is pleased to offer STEM grant opportunities throughout the school year. More grants are expected to be announced in January, 2019. Please watch for further opportunities in the coming months.
