Toshiba Launches Science and Math Grant
The Toshiba America Foundation this week announced new grant opportunities for K-12 schools in the area of science and math, part of $500,000 in grants the foundation awards to schools each year. The latest program, Science and Math Improvement Grant, will award up to $5,000 per applicant.
The Science and Math Improvement Grant awards schools for "programs and activities that improve teaching and learning in science and mathematics" in K-12 education. K-6 teachers can receive $1,000 mini-grants for math and science projects. Teachers of grades 7 through 12 can receive grants of up to $5,000. The deadline for K-6 grant applications is Oct. 1. Teachers of grades 7 through 12 can apply at any time during the calendar year. Teachers can also apply for grants larger than $5,000. Such applications will be reviewed twice per year: Feb. 1 and Aug. 1.
The Toshiba America Foundation has so far granted some $8.1 million to educators since its inception, supporting about 1,600 schools in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. More information about the grant program can be found at the link below.
