Grant Description
Grants of up to $5,000 to Wisconsin established organizations to develop and provide STEM and space-related activities. Funding may be used for new initiatives or for improvements to ongoing projects. Eligible organizations include but are not limited to schools, IHEs, government agencies, nonprofit aerospace organizations, and aerospace industries.

Proposed projects should:

  1. Build strategic linkages between STEM formal and informal education providers that promote STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) literacy and awareness of NASA’s mission.
  2. Foster and enhance a connection between STEM formal and informal education providers to strengthen efforts in recruiting and retaining students in STEM fields.
  3. Increase interest, recruitment, experience, knowledge, and training of the next generation of experts in the pursuit of space- or aerospace-related science, design or technology through community-based programming.
  4. Encourage individuals in space-related pursuits by creating a pipeline for program participants into other WSGC programs.
  5. Include metrics that clearly define project outcomes, not only the number of participants.
