Expand Access to High-Quality STEM Curricula

The purpose of these grants is to increase access to evidence-based and highly engaging STEM curricula in the Commonwealth’s schools. The intended outcomes of this competitive grant are to increase rigor of STEM-related curricula and to engage more students, particularly in schools with high concentrations of low-income and historically disadvantaged student populations, in hands-on STEM-focused learning with real-world application throughout their PK-12 and post-secondary experience. The curriculum should also aid in ultimately leading students into relevant, engaging, and rewarding college and career pathways.

Applicants focused on curriculum related to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) at the 9-12 grade levels may be considered for pilot program funding.
