Building STEAM Grants

Applications for 2020 Coming Soon.

The best learning environments shape students into independent, creative thinkers with real-world skills. But these environments can only be built by granting teachers the freedom to embrace innovative teaching through the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.

At Public Education Partners, we believe in the power of creative and engaging teaching, and we also believe this type of instruction should not be limited by money. To help make this kind of passionate teaching a reality, all Greenville County K-12 teachers (regardless of subject area) are encouraged to apply for our “Building STEAM” grant. This application involves proposing a special project to increase classroom engagement through one of the teacher’s own interests. Our grants give teachers the opportunity to expand their teaching methods and invest in creative education tools that otherwise would be out of reach.

Made possible by a generous donation from one of our donors, the grants are available to teachers of any content area (STEM, Humanities, Related Arts, Instructional Coaches) as long as the projects/units are related to one or more STEAM fields. Already the grants have provided one-of-a-kind learning opportunities for students and will continue to enrich these classrooms for years ahead.

If you are interested in applying for a Building STEAM Grant, please download and complete the application below. Applications should be saved as PDFs and labeled BuildingSTEAM2019-(Your Last Name)-(Your School) and emailed to Qena Jennings, Program Director, at by March 1. Please email Qena or call (864) 255-5333 for any additional questions.
