During this edWebinar, participants will learn about various funding sources through federal, state and local grants, as well as strategies to secure private foundation funding.
Learn how to develop a fundable and sustainable STEM education program that will qualify for entitlement funding and at the same time, can be used to apply for public and private grants. Identify and explore best strategies and leading indicators that both interest the funding source and qualify under their guidelines. This session will provide clarity and a roadmap to guide you in securing funding for your STEM program.
During the edWebinar, educators and administrators will:
- Learn about federal entitlement programs that support STEM education
- Discover foundation approaches to program design
- Identify the key elements grantors seek in awarding STEM grants
- Learn to tell your story to the grantor
- Review best practices for entitlement fund and grant seeking
This event will be of particular benefit to K-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions after the presentation.
