PHOENIX – Time is running out for Arizona K-12 teachers in public and charter schools within APS’s service territory to apply for STEM mini-grants for the 2016-17 school year. This year’s deadline to apply for the grants is Wednesday, October 5.

For more than a decade, APS and the Phoenix Suns have partnered to promote STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math) in Arizona schools by offering $50,000 in mini-grants for teachers to implement innovative and hands-on projects that help bring STEM subjects to life. Grants of up to $2,500 each may be awarded, with a total of $50,000 available for the 2016-2017 school year.

Teachers are invited to visit aps.com/corporategiving for program procedures, criteria and STEM mini-grants applications. At that link, they also will find a list of project summaries from the 2015-16 school year. Applications will be accepted online until October 5, and recipients will be notified of the status of their application by November 8. For more information, teachers may contact Laura McBride, APS senior corporate giving specialist, at 602-250-2702 or by email at Laura.McBride@aps.com.
