UCOR is accepting proposals from area schools for educational grants with a specific goal of enabling new instructional methods in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
UCOR Education Mini-Grants will be awarded directly to teachers and schools for specific projects. All teachers are welcome to apply, but proposals should focus on STEM projects. For instance, a music teacher might apply for a grant for a math-related project within the field of music.
Schools in Roane, Anderson, Loudon, Morgan, and Knox counties are eligible to submit proposals. Applications may be made for $500 (for a single classroom), $750 (for a grade or several classes) or $1,000 (for an entire school).
Check Guidelines and Criteria for more information. Applications must be received by Tuesday, March 21, 2017.
