|Regional STEM Hub Grant|
|We are pleased to announce the next grant connected to Oregon’s Strategic Initiatives. As part of House Bill 3232, Strategic Initiatives for Student Success, there are several grants aimed at addressing the needs of underserved students in our schools and communities as we work toward our 40-40-20 goal. Key to this work are investments to increase student proficiency in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, in addition to connecting to the world of work. The Regional STEM Hub Grant is designed to fund school districts, postsecondary institutions, or student-focused nonprofits that form a mutually supportive statewide network of hubs for implementation and dissemination of best STEM practices. Additionally, these Regional STEM Hubs will foster 21st century STEM career skills and provide for student populations that have historically been underserved and underrepresented throughout the state.
To access the RFP for the Regional STEM Hub Grant, go to http://www.ode.state.or.us//wma/opportunities/grants/regional_stem_hub_grant_2014-15.doc . The RFPs are due January 21, 2014.
A technical assistance and application webinar will be held on December 16, 2013 at 12:30 pm. To join the online meeting click here.
