How to Help
We're excited to share that the $35,000 in grants have been distributed to eight innovative organizations supporting community-based STEM projects. Earlier this year, the Society gave $20,000 to five other organizations.
Through the STEM Action Grant Program, supported by Regeneron, the Society funds mission-driven organizations that promote STEM and science literacy.
STEM Action Grants
The STEM Action Grants support organizations that aim to nurture the public’s understanding of STEM fields, spark a life-long interest in and appreciation for STEM fields through unique programming and increase participation in STEM fields of underrepresented populations.
The following organizations received STEM Action Grants:
