IEEE STEM Grant Program

The STEM Portal Grant Program is designed to spur STEM outreach and innovation by providing funding to IEEE volunteers to develop new STEM programs or enhance (or maintain) existing programs. The programs engaged with students, teachers, parents, and volunteers all over the world, providing opportunities for STEM exposure, learning, and training. The 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024 grant programs combined funded 144 programs, awarded over $176,379, and represented 6 IEEE Regions.
