1. Purchase proceeds to help classrooms

From Dec. 1 to Dec. 24, Epson will donate 5 percent of select purchases made on Epson.com – up to $100,000 – to support eligible classroom projects across America.

2. Up to $10K for female-led projects

Community Action Grants provide funds to individuals, AAUW branches, and AAUW state organizations as well as local community-based nonprofit organizations for innovative programs or non-degree research projects that promote education and equality for women and girls. Special consideration is given to projects focused on K–12 and community college girls’ and women’s achievements in science, technology, engineering, or math. Deadline: January 15th, 2014. For more information and details on how to apply, visit our Grants & Funding page.

3. Up to $7M for youth career training

The program is designed to provide high school students with education and training that combines rigorous academic and technical curricula focused on specific in-demand occupations and industries for which employers are using H-1B visas to hire foreign workers as well as the related activities necessary to support such training to increase participants’ employability in H-1B in-demand industries and occupations. Furthermore, given the large number of H-1B visas in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) industries, pending high quality proposals, DOL expects a large share of the grants to support education and training in STEM industries. Deadline: January 27th, 2014. For more information and details on how to apply, visit our Grants & Funding page.
