What is this grant?
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 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.
- These grants will be supported with funds provided by the 2017 legislature via Senate Bill (SB) 190.
- Applicants may request funds for 1–3 years.
- Consortia must include two or more LEAs or schools.
