News Announcements

The Oregon Legislature in collaboration with the Oregon STEM Investment Council, the Chief Education Office, and the Oregon Department of Education funded several STEM-related grant programs for the 2015-2017 biennium. These programs are described in HB3072, passed in 2015.

Regional STEM Hub Program Expansion Grant

We are pleased to announce the release of the Regional STEM Hub - Program Expansion Grant, Cohort 2. This grant is intended to continue to build capacity and address the urgency to address student academic success in CTE and STEM education through programs and activities that have been identified through a needs assessment and gap analysis. These CTE and STEM programs in formal and informal settings will increase awareness, interest and provide pathways to foster 21st century career skills. They will expand access for student populations that have historically been underserved and underrepresented throughout the state.

Regional STEM Hub Grants

The grants are intended to develop and expand collaborative efforts that leverage community assets in order to increase students’ proficiency, interest, and attainment of post-secondary credentials and degrees in STEM and CTE. These regional collaborations will be a catalyst to drive economic vitality for individuals, communities, and the State. This grant supports the "backbone" coordination, data, and communication efforts of emerging Regional STEM Hubs. The purpose of funding the Emerging STEM Hub Backbone is to provide initial funding to develop a local framework of sustainable partnerships and to create a formalized Partnership Plan

STEM Innovation Grants

STEM innovation grants expand the implementation of effective programs related to STEM and propose innovative approaches or programs that provide professional development to transform instruction within the STEM disciplines.
