Bringing Equity to STEM Education

Every student, regardless of their background, should have the opportunity to embrace and excel in STEM education.

The Kid Spark STEM Equity Grants Initiative facilitates this by offering schools and afterschool programs that serve a high number of Title 1 students a complete STEM program, including everything they need to implement STEM learning in the classroom—free of charge. By applying for a grant, you can take the first step toward giving your students the opportunity to foster a genuine passion for STEM.

Grant Eligibility

Eligible applicants for this program include U.S. Public Head Start, preschool, elementary, middle, and non-profit after-school or summer schools serving a high percentage of Title 1 students from Pre-K through grade 8. Priority is given to schools with a high percentage of underserved and underrepresented students.

Should a school not be selected for a complete grant award, we have resources available and tailored to aid in crafting proposals for diverse national and local grant opportunities that align with each organization's objectives. 

Eligible schools also have the option to seek a grant discount.  This opportunity guarantees that schools can access cost-savings benefits, even if they don't secure a fully funded Kid Spark STEM Equity Grant.
