Mar. 1, 2024: STEMList Applications Due
High-quality STEM Programs are invited to apply for inclusion on OSIT’s STEMList of Recommended STEM Programs!
Applications open January 2nd and are due March 1st.
Programs on the list demonstrate attributes of high-quality programming, such as hands-on experiences, implementation of research-based equity strategies, and Nevada-relevant contexts.
Once on the list, elementary schools can apply for the K-5 STEM grant to fund the program. Grant applications for the Designated STEM School Grant and the Regional STEM Network Grants which request funds for programs on the list are more likely to be funded over applications requesting funding for programs not on the list. OSIT, the Nevada Legislature, and other State agencies also use this list to recommend programs to schools and when making funding decisions.
Look for the application and current list of programs on OSIT’s website: https://osit.nv.gov/STEM/STEMList(1)/
