STEM Teaching Fellows Grant Program

The Foundation for East Baton Rouge School System will award grant funds of $1,000 to fifteen (15) eligible EBR teachers/staff to recognize and build capacity for excellence, innovation, and leadership in the field of PK-12 STEM education.

• Participation in STEM Teaching Lab activities

• Year-round professional and collaborative learning

• $1,000 grant award
