Grant Description
Grants of up to $5,000 to Idaho K-12 teachers to defray the costs of class and professional development trips. Grant funds may be used for expenses associated with travel to competitions, science centers, camps, field trips, and other STEM-related activities. Funds can be requested for either student activities or educator professional development.

SGC is especially interested in projects that include an actionable plan to broaden participation among underrepresented, low-income, rural, first-generation, and/or female students. Projects should have a clear tie to NASA's missions, the aerospace industry, and/or utilizing NASA content and resources.
