Toshiba America Foundation: Grants for Grades K-5Deadline: October 1, 2016
Toshiba America Foundation accepts applications from teachers who are passionate about making science and mathematics more engaging for their students. The Foundation’s goal is to improve student achievement in science and math. Successful grantees have designed projects that tap into the natural curiosity of their students, enable students to frame their own scientific questions, and incorporate the expertise of community partners. Projects should be innovative, make learning fun, and incorporate project based learning with measurable outcomes. The Foundation strongly encourages projects planned and led by individual teachers or teams of teachers for their own classrooms.
Before submitting a completed proposal, teachers are welcome to call the Toshiba America Foundation (212-596-0620) to discuss their project ideas.
Amount: Grants of up to $1,000 are considered.
Eligibility: Funding is usually directed to K-12 schools. Educational nonprofits and universities working with K-12 teachers are occasionally considered, but are asked to call the foundation first.
