The Toshiba America Foundation is accepting applications from middle- and high-school teachers who are passionate about making science and mathematics more engaging for their students.
Grant proposals for amounts of up to $5,000 are accepted on a rolling basis. However, the foundation will consider larger grant amounts twice a year — on August 1 and February 1. Summer projects or afterschool programs will not be considered, nor will salaries, facility maintenance, textbooks, video production, audio-visual equipment (e.g., electronic white boards, Smartboards, document projectors, student response systems), or education research. In addition, grants will not be awarded for the purchase of computer hardware.
Science and math teachers in public or private (nonprofit) schools are eligible to apply. Endorsement from a school official is required.
See the Toshiba America Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
