STEM Computing Partnership Grant



Grant Description

The Computing Partnerships grant helps identify gaps in and provide solutions for computing opportunities for students and teachers in Utah. This grant is intended to target the development of new, innovative computing activities or support an increase in the capacity of existing, proven programs. Applicants are encouraged to emphasize activities that support the integration of coding into problem-solving and that are cross-disciplinary. The STEM Action Center is also interested in activities that provide access to underserved populations and have a focus on activities outside of the classroom; however, applicants may address a variety of activities that support computing activities.
