Check out these two funding opportunities to help you continue to offer STEAM related activities for and with the teens in your community:

  1. The University of California Humanities Research Institute (UCHRI), with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, today announced a $700,000 open international challenge to scale connected learning through innovative learning playlists that close the opportunity gap and help learners succeed in today’s connected world. The interdisciplinary alliance HASTAC will help to administer the competition on behalf of UCHRI. Applications are due May 13, 2016.  The 6th Digital Media and Learning Competition-- Playlists for Learning - will offer year-long development grants ranging from $25,000 to $125,000. Winning teams will design connected learning playlists that provide viable alternatives to traditional learning pathways while scaling experiences and content to diverse local and digital audiences. Winners will become part of an innovative community of thought-leaders, academics, practitioners, educators, designers, technologists, and media artists that are leading the transformation of curriculum design and learning for the connected age.
  2. Knight News Challenge: apply by March 21st in order to be eligible for up to $500,000 in grant funds to implement a project that addresses "how might libraries serve 21st century information needs."
