STEM Grants For Teachers

2019-2020 STEM Grant applications open – all TUSD teachers are eligible to apply!

Calling all TUSD Teachers!  We are pleased to announce the 2019-2020 application cycle of the TEF STEM Grants Initiative is OPEN. 

Because academic success in the 21st century cannot be achieved without a keen appreciation for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, TEF in 2014 launched its STEM Initiative to assist teachers in providing exciting, engaging opportunities for students of all ages to explore these subjects and develop their proficiency and capability.

Initially providing funding for five target programs, TEF STEM Initiative Grants now support eight programs that build curiosity, develop STEM knowledge and skills, involve parents, and encourage both individual and team endeavor:

Engineering After-School Clubs
First Lego League & Robotics
Family STEM Night
Hour of Code (computer coding)
Math Counts
Science Olympiad
Cyber-Patriots
StellarXplorers

Teachers with questions about project eligibility should contact us at Admin@TEF4kid.org.
