Announcing Two New Programs from the AFCEA Educational Foundation

November 1, 2020

Ciena Teacher Grants

The Ciena Grants were established to support K-12 classroom teachers with the implementation of innovative and engaging STEM programs, activities and technology (software and hardware) to promote learning and digital equality. This grant will award deserving teachers up to $1,000 to apply towards materials and resources to support STEM programs and activities. Schools with high economic need will be given priority consideration to support digital equality. Innovative distance and virtual learning projects and programs will be considered.

Intel and AFCEA Educational Foundation Veteran Diversity Graduate Scholarship

This new program will provide $3,000 scholarships to a full-time female or minority student currently pursuing a graduate degree (masters or Ph.D.) at an accredited academic institution in the United States and living in the United States. The eligible majors for this scholarship support the mission of the AFCEA Educational Foundation. In addition to the diversity requirement, applicants must also be either a current member of the Armed Forces or have prior military experience. Students must be majoring in a STEM field.
