2017 STEM Innovation Awards

The Silicon Valley Education Foundation is now accepting applications and nominations for its 7th annual STEM Innovation Awards. We invite organizations to apply directly and encourage the community to submit names of organizations or programs doing exceptional work in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education.

The awards, sponsored by leading Silicon Valley companies, honor organizations and programs that inspire students and teachers whose work leads the way in advancing STEM education in Silicon Valley and across the nation. Awardees will be honored at SVEF’s annual Pioneers & Purpose: A Celebration for Education, giving them the opportunity for increased visibility throughout the community.

Non-profit winners receive a $5,000 grant for their work.
