Funding Opportunity: STEM Classroom and Labs Grant

Washington STEM and OSPI are pleased to announce that the next round of STEM Classroom and Labs Grants are now open.
Students learning in Kettle Falls.

Last year, students in Finley were taking environmental science in an old bus barn and students in Kettle Falls were taking robotics in a thirty-three -year-old metal shop.

This year, thanks to funding from the state’s STEM capital grants, those same students, along with students in four other school districts, are exploring the latest concepts of STEM in state-of the art maker spaces, fabrication labs, and environmental science classrooms.

There’s now another opportunity to expand access to innovative STEM classroom and lab spaces to additional high school students throughout the state.

Washington STEM and OSPI are pleased to announce that the next round of STEM Classroom and Labs Grants are now open. $10 million is available for school districts serving students in grade 9-12 to modernize specialized STEM facilities or construct classrooms or labs as additions to existing school buildings. Districts applying must have a cash, in-kind, or equipment donation of $100,000.

The application opens July 11, 2018 and closes October 15, 2018 at 4pm.
