Grants to Illinois schools and school districts for programs that make STEAM educational programming available to low-income K-12 students. Priority will be given to programs that provide young women with hands-on experiences and programs that encourage them to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. School STEAM grants shall be made available to public schools, charter schools, area vocational centers, and laboratory schools in which the percentage of students classified as low-income exceeds the state average.
Grant recipients shall use the funds to either conduct or contract with a third party to conduct programming for K-12 learners that encourages and promotes career opportunities and skill attainment in the fields of science, technology, engineering, fine arts, and mathematics for students in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Eligible applicants must exceed the state low-income threshold during the 2019-20 school year.
The School STEAM Grant Program seeks to provide equitable programming for students classified as low-income in disadvantaged neighborhoods. It also seeks to create more opportunities for young women to explore fields traditionally represented by males.
