$5,000 STEM Grant Program Opens
The application period for the Lowe's Toolbox for Education grant program is now open. The program will award $2,000 to $5,000 classroom grants to as many as 1,000 schools and parent-teacher organizations.
For this fall's grant cycle, there are three priorities for the use of the funds:
- Tools for STEM programs;
- Technology upgrades; and
- Facilities/safety upgrades.
Proposed projects must be completed within one year of receiving the grant. A list of sample projects can be found on the grant site.
All public and charter K–12 schools in the United States are eligible to apply, as are nonprofits associated with a K–12 school, such as a PTA. Only one application per school will be accepted.
The deadline to apply for the grant is Sept. 28 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. Winners will be announced in January 2019. Further details and a link to the application form can be found at toolboxforeducation.com/hta.
