2017 AFTERSCHOOL STEM GRANTS
DEADLINE: APRIL 28, 2017

AzCASE and Cox Communications invite Arizona out-of-school time programs to apply for a 2017 Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) grant. Programs are encouraged to work with staff and youth to develop creative, new ways to incorporate STEM into out-of-school time programming.

Grants ranging from $500 to $1,500 will be funded based on the quality and impact of the proposed projects.

Programs serving K-12 youth afterschool, before school, during summer and on school breaks are eligible to apply.

Grants will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Quality of the STEM project concept
  • Alignment with out-of-school time best practices
  • Demographic reach of the project
  • Clear budget that aligns with STEM project described
An extra point will be awarded to programs that have signed the Make It Count Pledge, and an extra two points will be awarded to programs that have submitted an assessment using the Arizona Quality Standards Assessment Tool.
