The Arizona Educational Foundation, Intel and the Intel Foundation are providing 40 teachers throughout the state with a $2,500 STEAM grant to fund science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics projects.

The Arizona Educational Foundation (AEF) is proud to announce we are

In celebration of Intel’s 40th anniversary in Arizona, forty teachers throughout the state will receive $2500 grants to fund science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics projects.

“These teacher grants will deepen the positive impact of our state’s teachers and inspire more students to consider careers in STEAM fields. No matter if the need is big or small, we encourage all teachers to apply,” shared Kim Graham, executive director of the Arizona Educational Foundation.

Investing in education and in our community is an investment in our community’s future. We are so proud of the ecosystem of innovation that we’ve helped build here in Arizona, and we’re excited to support Arizona teachers, who are inspiring the next generation of innovators and leaders.
