STEM Grant Program
Science - Technology - Engineering - Math
The STEM Grant Program was initiated in the fall of 2016 by the Club. The program’s purpose is to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics education by funding STEM projects in public middle schools that would otherwise go unfunded.
In August, 2019, principals of all public schools in the City of Huntsville and Madison County school systems were notified by email of the availability of STEM grants from the Optimist Club of Huntsville. Enclosed in the email was a Grant Application Form and instructions on how to submit the application. Appplications were accepted beginning September 1, 2019 and ending October 15, 2019.
After all applications and presentations wer reviewed and evaluated, the STEM Grant Committee makes its grant recommendations to the Club’s board of directors for approval. The following grants were awarded om December 12th at the Optimist Recreational Center.
