Opportunities For Teachers of

Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM)


Gravely Grants for STEM Teachers

Named after the Foundation's first executive dircetor, VADM Samuel L. Gravely Jr. USN, Retired.

The AFCEA Educational Foundation is dedicated to providing support to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students and teachers. Since 2010, AFCEA Educational Foundation has invested more than $1.2 million in teachers who are providing innovative STEM learning opportunities in their classrooms. These funds have directly impacted more than 60,000 students in elementary through high school across the United States.

The Gravely Grants provides funding to US elementary and high schools to promote STEM innovation in the classrooms with emphasis on elementary academic programs. Grants will range between $500-$1,000 to the school for the awarded program.  This is a joint effort between AFCEA chapters and the AFCEA Educational Foundation to help augment cost to students inside or outside of the classroom such as robotics clubs, cyber clubs and other STEM related activities to promote STEM to students.

Guidelines for Gravely Grants for STEM Teachers:

1. The teacher must be teaching science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) at an elementary or high school in the US. Teachers working in schools with economically disadvantaged students will be considered first. The awards are not limited to public schools.

2. Selection will be based on the teacher's skills, his/her potential to use the funds well and financial need.

3. A detail proposal is required stating the following:

Title of program/project

Description of program/project

Number of students involved/impacted

Cost of program/project

How the funds will be used

4. A letter of recommendation from the principal of the school.

5. Grants will be awarded in September for the 2015-2016 school year.

Deadline was July 31, 2015
