STEM grants from AFCEA Hawaii available to educators for first time

Apply by Oct. 2 for grants from $200 to $5,000

For the first time, the Hawaii chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA Hawaii) is offering science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) grants to teachers and others associated with teaching STEM subjects to Hawaii students.

AFCEA Hawaii recognizes the importance of encouraging students to pursue STEM careers, and the critical role of teachers in their success. Motivated STEM teachers can spark a lasting enthusiasm for STEM subjects and provide the foundation for a lifelong and fulfilling career.

To empower Hawaii’s educators in their drive for STEM innovation and instruction, AFCEA Hawaii is offering two $5,000 STEM grants in honor of two AFCEA Hawaii leaders, Cynthia Pacheco and Ed Ryglewicz. These grants will recognize outstanding teachers who engage Hawaii students in critical and creative thinking, and demonstrate personal broad scope and sustainability beyond the application of their project or program.

AFCEA Hawaii is also offering 20 to 30 STEM grants for K–12 programs ranging from $200 to $2,000 per grant for the 2020–21 school year. All STEM grants must be used for the purpose of STEM learning and directly benefit Hawaii students.

The deadline to apply for these grants is Oct. 2, 2020.
