STEM Learning in the Library –
New Round of Mini-Grants
We are happy to report that we received renewed funding from Con Edison to support another round of mini-grants in 2016. This round will focus on STEM learning activities and programs for youth and teens. A copy of the RFP cane be viewed below. Applications are due by February 15, 2016.
Libraries that have received mini-grant funding in the past are eligible to apply again. However, if funding requests exceed the amount of funds available ($10,000) those libraries that did not receive a mini-grant in 2015 will have priority as long as they meet the funding criteria. Keep in mind that these grants are designed as an opportunity to present a program that focuses on active learning and is outside of your regular programming.
