Enriching the STEM Experience for NC students

The Student STEM Enrichment Program (SSEP) through Burroughs Wellcome Fund is now accepting proposals. This program has supported informal STEM enrichment activities that take place outside of the normal school time for more than two decades. It is open to any North Carolina non-profit, but we strongly encourage partnerships and collaboration among organizations targeting underserved and underrepresented communities. SSEP awards provide up to $60,000 per year for three years for the creation and implementation of after-school, weekend, or summer STEM programs. Non-profit organizations such as colleges, museums, schools, community groups, and youth development organizations may apply. Proposed programs must be designed in consideration of school curricula; implemented by well-trained staff; and structured with learning objectives and post-participation assessments. Since the program's inception in 1996, BWF has awarded more than 200 grants for a $34 million investment in the STEM potential of North Carolina students. Deadline to apply is April 15. To learn more, visit www.bwfund.org/ssep. Please enjoy your e-Update. Tweet us @NCSTEM with your feedback and thoughts about this issue or future ones.
