AL STEM Council Funding
The STEM Council is supporting the inaugural round of Scale Up at $75,000 total for FY2022.* Three levels of funding are available:
Level 1 – Up to $1000
Level 2 – Up to $10,000
Level 3 – Up to $50,000
Business and Industry and/or Other Grant Funding
Although this funding is not guaranteed, business and industry and/or other non-profit organizations may select some of these programs to fund independent of the aforementioned $75K funding level. Therefore, applicants are also encouraged to prepare and to submit a secondary “wish list budget” beyond the levels listed above. This “Wish List Budget” should be labeled as such and should be submitted along with the Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 budget request as defined above.
All funds will be distributed through cost-reimbursement.
Numerous factors influence total funds to providers, including marketing effectiveness, alignment with Education goals and standards, and number of applications at the regional level. There is no assurance by the STEM Council that any program will be scaled; program selections are market-driven.
