The NASA Office of Education is pleased to offer Summer of Innovation, or SoI, Mini-Grant opportunities in partnership with the National Space Grant Foundation. The mini-grant aspect of the SoI enables local organizations to infuse NASA-themed science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, content and activities to middle school students through existing summer and/or afterschool programs. NASA looks forward to forging ahead with these important collaborations to engage and inspire students across the country.
Organizations are eligible to apply for up to $2,500 in funding to incorporate SoI content and themes into their programming.
