Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $500 to $2,000 to Alaska K-12 after-school providers for high-quality after-school programs that focus on the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Funding is intended to support K-12 after-school programs in their efforts to develop, improve, or expand innovative instructional programs in STEM subjects during out-of-school time.

After-school programs are defined as programs that take place when school is not in session and provide educational enrichment activities for students in grades K-12. After-school programs provide students with academic enrichment opportunities, as well as additional activities designed to complement school districts’ academic programs. After-school programs improve school attendance, academic achievement, in-school behavior, and reduce youth risk behaviors of participating students.

The objectives of the grant are to increase access to STEM programming during out-of-school time to increase students’ STEM identity, STEM career interest, and improve academics.

The general guidelines for these grants are:

- Program must serve a minimum of 10 participants.
- Program must involve students and/or educators currently living in Alaska.
- Individual program sites and/or educators are eligible to apply, though larger programs should be aware that program site applications will be in competition with one another. Only one project per program site will be funded.
- Funding should not be used to supplant existing funding, such as funding from a school district, grants, or other sources of funding.
- Funding can be used to help support teacher/educator stipends, program supplies, and/or travel. A detailed budget and budget narrative are required with all applications.
- As a condition of accepting this grant award, recipients agree to have at least one staff member attend a 3 hour DoS Program Planning Tool training. Logistics for this online training will be provided with grant award notification.
- Grant funds must be used by July 31, 2018 with a final report, including pictures, submitted by August 15, 2018. Organizations are responsible for ensuring all youth photographed have photo releases for public use.
- The number of grants funded will depend on the number of applicants and funds available.
