Change the Equation STEMworks Database

  • by

Change the Equation, a nonprofit, nonpartisan, CEO-led initiative, has created the STEMworks database to help business leaders and other funders identify and support programs that boost STEM interest and learning. STEMworks is the latest initiative in Change the Equation’s effort to mobilize the business community to improve the quality of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning in the United States.

Business members of Change the Equation alone provide more than $500 million a year to support STEM education. But there are still many worthy STEM learning programs that deserve more attention.
Applications are now being accepted for the STEMworks database. Any STEM learning program that serves PK-12 students and teachers, in or out of school, can apply. Applicants will be reviewed by WestEd, an independent, non-profit research, development, and service organization, against Change the Equation’s Design Principles for Effective Philanthropy. Every applicant program will receive detailed feedback on its application’s strengths and weaknesses. The names of programs that apply but are not admitted will remain strictly confidential.

Programs accepted into the STEMworks database can promote their inclusion as a sign of quality. STEMworks programs are noteworthy for their ability to show evidence of their impact and demonstrate their effectiveness in addressing the needs of their target audience.

How to Apply
To apply, please visit the STEMworks database.
There are three dates for the open solicitation. Programs that apply early will have more opportunity to respond to feedback and reapply, if necessary.
