Grants for K-12 Math Education

From The Foundation Center...

10) Motorola Offers Innovation Generation Grants for Science and Math Education Programs

Deadline: March 1, 2008

In 2008, the Motorola Foundation will provide a total of $4 million in Innovation Generation Grants to organizations that engage K-12 students and teachers in the U.S. in innovation, science, technology, engineering, and math.

Funding priority will be placed on pioneering programs that engage students and teachers in innovative, hands-on activities; teach innovation and creative problem-solving skills; focus on girls and underrepresented minorities; engage Motorola employees as volunteers; take place in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas com- munities where Motorola has an employee presence; demonstrate measurable outcomes; and are less than two years old.

Any U.S. nonprofit organization may apply. Schools and school districts may apply. Grant applicants may request up to $100,000 each. Select organizations may be asked to apply for larger grants. Grants will be for one year of project work, starting after June 2008. At least 25 percent of the total grant dollars available will support new programming that has been in existence for less than two years and is not simply an expansion of an existing program. Returning 2007 Innovation Generation Grant recipients must demonstrate that they have created new STEM partnerships with business, another nonprofit organization, or another foundation.
