$1K STEM Grants Available for K-12 Schools, Apply by May 31


The first annual Lt. Governors’ STEM Scholarship Program awards up to $1,000 to 12 schools nationally to support STEM-related activities for students. Applications will be accepted until May 31, 2022, with award recipients announced and funded this Summer 2022.

The National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA) will award three scholarships to states in each of the four NLGA regions for 2022. Two schools from each region will receive $1,000 rewards each, and one school from each region will be awarded $500 – for a total of 12 scholarships with $10,000.

The funding must be utilized for Science, Technology, Engineering, and/or Mathematics educational opportunities – such as projects curriculum, or equipment.

Administered by the NLGA, the scholarship program is sponsored by the ACT, the education and career readiness nonprofit, and the only college admissions test provider to include a science assessment.

All public, private, and tribal schools in all 50 states and five U.S. territories are invited to apply.
