Grants of up to $1,000 to Indiana organizations that work together to inform and motivate girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). These grants provide the opportunity for programs to increase their ability to maintain interest and participation of girls in STEM through collaboration.
Funded activities should facilitate connections between organizations to maximize access to shared resources. Collaboration, as an interactive process, enables professionals across projects and communities to generate and carry out creative solutions and strategies that maximize benefit beyond what one project or community could accomplish. The model is structured to bring organizations together to leverage resources, share information and exemplary practices, and to plan strategically to expand STEM-related opportunities for girls.
Collaborative activities will be facilitated with the support of a Collaborative Leadership Team and Champions Board provided by the National Girls Collaborative Project.
