The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) recently announced up to $10 million in PAsmart Advancing Grants are available to support high-quality programs in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and computer science (CS). Up to $500,000 each, these grants are designed to:

  • Expand access to CS/STEM education and promote inclusion (especially for historically underserved students and communities) through learning experiences such as integrative CS/STEM experiences, standalone CS/STEM courses, out-of-school learning, dual enrollment, industry credentials, work-based learning, internships and apprenticeships.
  • Expand and diversify the number of CS/STEM educators at all education levels.

Advancing Grants will support partnerships that operate on a larger scale and provide quality CS/STEM experiences to learners of any age (early childhood, preK-12, postsecondary and adult learners) as part of a high-level strategic approach to CS/STEM workforce readiness.

Advancing grant applications must be submitted to PDE by Monday, March 21, 2022.
