STEM Grant Opportunity

Apply for a STEM grant with support from Verizon by February 27th!

generationOn is pleased to announce a new round of grant funding, made possible with the generous support of Verizon. Applications open on February 6th and close on the 27th

Grants will support the completion of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related service projects by youth ages 5-18.

There's lots of great ways to combine STEM and service, here are just a few examples to get you thinking! 

  • For example, the STEM NYC Kids Care Club in New York learned about circuits, put their knowledge into action making lighted holidays cards before donating them to children in a local hospital!
  • In Brooklyn, a group of teens learned about the science behind hydroponic gardens, built their own, and donated them to local seniors.
  • In Indiana, youth at the Twin Lakes High School studied chain reactions and cause and effect using the Rube Goldberg machine and then set about creating their own chain reactions by writing and distributing kindness cards with a message to the recipient to pass it on!
