Developing and retaining STEM talent in CNY for economic advancement

The SRC STEM Grant program is intended to increase the opportunity for students to take part in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) related activities in the central New York area. The grants offer resources to fund extracurricular STEM activities to help cultivate ideas that will encourage students to consider a STEM career.  

Groups can apply for $100-$500 grants to fund activities like the robotics club, Lego club, Science Olympiad, math league, etc. The grants can be used to purchase materials directly related to a STEM activity, for transportation or team admission to a competition. Grants will not be issued for food or personal trip expenses (including group lodging, etc.). Please note, you may not apply for a grant for two consecutive years if the first request was approved.

To apply, please fill out this application form. Your grant application will be reviewed and you will be contacted with a decision 2-3 weeks after submission.
