The Toshiba America Foundation is accepting grant applications from grade K - 5 teachers for innovative science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) projects.
Through the program, grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded to teachers in support of efforts to bring an innovative project to life within their classroom. Applications must be for project-based learning.
For 2020-21, the foundation is considering the COVID-19 pandemic impact on teachers and education and has indicated that it cannot presume to suggest how teachers should deal with the obstacles that social distancing and safety concerns place in the way. For now, alternative proposals will be considered contingent on how, when, and if schools are open as usual. Under the circumstances, the foundation also aims to be more accommodating in considering the kinds of equipment or expenses it can fund.
Funding is typically directed to K-12 schools. Educational nonprofits and universities working with K-12 teachers are occasionally considered, but please call the foundation first.
See the Toshiba America Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
