Are you looking for grant funding to support your STEM programs of study? Pathways Resource Center is partnering with I-STEM to provide a workshop that will help you locate funders, build partnerships, and successfully develop grant proposals. I-STEM is a University of Illinois coalition that “works with internal and external partners to evaluate STEM education programs, provide news coverage of STEM initiatives and events, to facilitate the development of education and outreach programs, and to help develop policies in Illinois and nationally that promote STEM education.”

This workshop will include an overview of the STEM funding landscape in Illinois and across the United States; a primer on types of funding; tips on locating funding sources and partners that match your goals; and an overview on writing successful grant proposals.

The registration fee of $100 includes the text (provided at the workshop) and administrator academy credit fee. This workshop is partially subsidized for educators who are employed in an Illinois school district receiving Race to the Top funds, with a reduced registration fee of just $30.00.

This event has reached maximum capacity at this time.  If you would like to be added to a waiting list for this event please email your name, district/organization, phone number, to Heather Fox at
