The SRC STEM Grant program increases opportunities for students to participate in STEM-related activities in the Central New York area. The grants offer resources to fund extracurricular STEM activities to help cultivate ideas that will encourage students to consider a STEM career.
Groups can apply for $100 to $500 grants to fund activities like the robotics club, Lego club, Science Olympiad, math league, etc. They can be used to purchase materials for a STEM activity or pay for transportation or team admission to a competition. They are not issued for food or personal trip expenses (including group lodging, etc.). You may not apply for a grant for two consecutive school years if the first request was approved. Applicants are contacted within 2 to 3 weeks of submission.
