How to Get a School Grant: Grant Opportunities!

N-Vision a Brighter Future Grant from the Westinghouse Electric Company- Schools and teachers who want their students to learn more about STEM through a hands-on project should apply for this grant. The kinds of projects that will be considered are any creative hands-on project dealing with STEM. Grants may be used to compensate experts who come to work with students, but not to pay teachers or staff. Funds may also be used to purchase equipment or to provide field trip transportation, but not when these are ends alone. Equipment and trips should be just one component of a well-planned project, integrated with other curriculum materials and activities.
