Sandia National Laboratories: Educational SuccessDeadline: January 31, 2020
Sandia National Laboratories is committed to improving the lives of people in its local communities by increasing family stability, improving educational success, and supporting community leadership and economic development. Sandia’s Educational Success grants will support organizations who are working to improve the educational success of preK-12 students by improving academic performance and engagement. Programs should demonstrate sustainable improvement and where applicable, partnerships with other organizations to create efficiencies and avoid duplication of services. Priority will be given to programs that address:
- Student’s academic skills in preparation for college and career readiness.
- Priority programs include programs to enhance literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning.
- Learning through out-of-classroom time/extended learning programming (afterschool, summer, or other out-of-classroom time) that boost students’ educational, social, and/or behavioral growth to keep them engaged in their academic success.
- Resources for under-served students including students who may not receive equitable resources in the academic pipeline and low-income, under-represented racial/ethnic minorities, and first-generation college students.
- Teacher professional development programs that support teachers who are new (under 5 years in the profession) or teachers who provide instruction in computer science and/or cybersecurity.
Amount: Grants range from $5,000-$25,000.
