There isn’t nearly as much money out there for educational endeavors as there once was, and the noose is getting tighter every day.
That’s why it is alarming to think that the failure to take advantage of educational grants may leave money on the table that could have been put to a much better use enabling students and teachers in STEM learning.
In order to avoid this waste, every first-of-the month the online blog eschoolnews.com lists those very grants about to expire in hopes that educators reading the blog will take action.
Here are the most recent ones:
1. Grants of $5K or more for grades 6-12
The Toshiba America Foundation is looking for applications from teachers in science and math that want to engage their students more fully in these subjects.
Toshiba accepts requests for $5000 or less on a rolling basis; grants for $5000 or more are accepted on August 1 and February 1 of each year.
Don’t miss the February 1, deadline in 2014.
2. Up to $10K for home energy projects
Be aware of the America’s Home Energy Education Challenge deadline, November 15, 2013, teaching students about energy.
They are taught to develop techniques for reducing energy consumption and saving money in their own homes by cutting back on energy use.
3. $5,500 awards for science teachers
Are you a science teacher looking for funds to promote the innovative use of data collection using computers, graphing calculators and other handheld devices in your classroom?
Well, here is your chance.
Get your paperwork in before the Deadline of November 30, 2013.
Don’t let any of this money go to waste.
