Discovering and acquiring new STEM technology shouldn’t be a burden for schools and teachers. Eduporium’s monthly grant program makes it’s a little bit easier.  Every calendar month, we will award one $500 grant to a deserving school or teacher, helping educators build 21st century learning environments and equipping students with the skills they need for the future. Best of all, the technology can all be purchased from our store, making innovation in your school community easier than ever.

We’re looking for educators who have demonstrated innovation and creativity within their school community, those who have a financial need, and those who can provide a clear and concise product plan that can be implemented within six months.

Our Grant is open to all educators in the USA and we encourage everyone to apply! The application process opens on the first of each month and concludes on the 20th. Following the 20-day submission period, our panel will review all applications and notify the winner on the last business day of the month. We will announce the winner via our Twitter account and contact the person directly. Educators can only apply once per month, one application per person. Winning organizations are ineligible to apply for a calendar year. Recipients may use their grant award on any of the hundreds of STEM, MakerEd, and computing technologies available on the Eduporium store.
