MidValley STEM-CTE Hub Microgrants for Community-Based Organizations
With support from the Oregon Department of Education and local businesses, we are offering a limited number of $1,000-$5,000 microgrants for community-based organizations in Linn and Benton Counties.
The Mid-Valley STEM-CTE Hub’s goal is to ensure that all students in our region have access to meaningful STEM and CTE experiences. We firmly believe that supporting our local community ecosystems is one of the best ways to achieve that goal.
There is ample evidence that COVID is widening the existing systemic education and inequality gaps. We aim to work with our community partners to create inclusive plans to reduce barriers and support students. To that end, we encourage applicants to contact us with any questions or for more information about completing grant applications.
The MVSCH microgrants will be awarded to fund equity-focused, STEM-CTE-related projects or initiatives, especially for those furthest from opportunity.
Community-based organizations in Linn and Benton counties may apply. Grants will be reviewed by an external committee, using a scoring matrix. Grants will be made available on a rolling approval cycle throughout the 20-21 academic year to allow for maximum participation. All successful applicants this round will be asked to participate in a design thinking & resources professional development workshop prior to receiving any grant awards.
