Greetings,

 

A new grant opportunity is available for advancing STEM, STEAM, and/or CTE.  Since there is alignment to the requirements in CTE Revitalization Grant, I thought people on this list may be interested.  Here is the information about the grant released this week.

 

The STEM, STEAM and/or CTE Program & Activity Grant is designed to fund public schools, school districts, postsecondary institutions, or student-focused nonprofits that provide learning opportunities in both formal and informal educational settings.  These STEM, STEAM and/or CTE programs and activities will foster 21st century career skills, in addition to providing on-going access and opportunities to student populations that have historically been underserved and underrepresented throughout the state. 

 

 To access the RFP for the STEM, STEAM and/or CTE Program & Activity Grant, go to: http://www.ode.state.or.us/wma/opportunities/grants/steam_or_cte_prog_and_activity_rfp.docThe RFP is due January 29, 2014.

 

A technical assistance and application webinar will be held on December 30, 2013 at 3:15 pm. To join the online meetings please click here.  The password is: STEM 

 

If you have questions or concerns about the STEM, STEAM and/or CTE Program & Activity Grant please contact Jamie Rumage at jamie.rumage@ode.state.or.us or 503-947-6504.
