ONR Offering Funding for STEM Education Projects

The Office of Naval Research is offering a Sponsoring Scholars in Science Awards program to generate projects that cultivate student interest and participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), as part of a Navy-wide educational initiative. Up to 10 proposals will earn awards of $100,000 each in seed funding for further research and development of initiatives supporting K-12, higher education and educational research.

ONR will collect white papers for the program at the 2011 Naval Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Forum. All submissions must be presented in person at the event, to be held June 15-16 in Alexandria, Virginia.
