STEM Application

Application for the AFCEA North Carolina Chapter's $1000 Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)

The North Carolina Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) is pleased to announce our STEM Teaching Tool Grant Program for 2019. AFCEA is a non-profit organization consisting of over 33,000 members worldwide and dedicated to supporting and promoting professional networking and development within the military technology community. In addition, we have a passion for promoting the development of our country’s future science and technology leaders. The purpose of our STEM Teaching Tool Grant Program is to enable teachers to purchase lab supplies, hardware, software, projectors, other equipment, sponsor robotics teams, etc. The goal is to enable teachers to implement a new project or capability to more effectively encourage the development of students in the science and technology disciplines. Last year, our chapter awarded 9 $1,000 grants to schools in the local Fayetteville and Raleigh/Triangle area and 2 $1,000 grants to the Campbell University and Cleveland Community College Robotics Program. Now is the time to apply.
