Deadline quickly approaching for SSEP grants

Applications for the 2018 Student STEM Enrichment Program (SSEP) grant awards are due next month (April 18, 2018). Three-year awards provide up to $180,000 to North Carolina non-profit organizations, including public/private schools, universities, colleges, and museums. This program supports creative, inquiry-based science enrichment activities that occur outside the typical school day for K-12 students. The program’s goals are to nurture students’ enthusiasm about science, expose them to the excitement of scientific discovery, and interest them in pursuing careers in research or a variety of other careers in science. Please review SSEP Request for Proposals for complete eligibility requirements. You also can view the FAQ page for additional information. Please enjoy your e-Update. Tweet us @NCSTEM with suggestions, feedback or thoughts about this issue or future ones.
