STEM Research Grant Program

Society for Science & the Public aims to support school-based science research programs by providing one-time grants to high school teachers who are leading students in independent, authentic, STEM research projects.  These one-time grants of up to $5,000 can help fund equipment, materials & supplies needed to complete research projects, or provide transportation for students to locations where they can complete their research.  Grants will be awarded annually; the eligibility criteria will change each cycle. Schools may only be selected once every 3 years.  Please follow this link to apply:
