Applications are now open for grants offered by Idaho National Lab’s K-12 STEM education program.

The Idaho National Lab’s K-12 education program has partnered with Battelle Energy Alliance to award grants to schools and programs supporting science, technology, engineering and mathematics education.

There are four different categories of grants that are offered to different types of programs and their educational goals for K-12: The Gov. C.L. ”Butch” and First Lady Lori Otter INL/BEA STEM Impact Grant, Classroom Grant, Family and Community Engagement Grant and the STEM Equity Grant.

Each grant has a different maximum amount of money that will be awarded. In the past decade, INL has awarded over $5 million in different grants to support STEM education all across Idaho.

The applications are open until Feb. 28. After that date, a panel of judges will review each application individually to decide the grant winners.

Requirements for grant applicants can be found on their website. Links to the applications for each grant category are also available on INL’s website.
