Building STEAM Grants

The 21st century graduate needs an immersive understanding of the world and how it operates – and the best way to foster those opportunities is through innovation in the classroom. PEP seeks to support teachers as they develop real-world, practical projects that engage students through a holistic classroom experience. PEP’s Building STEAM grant supports teachers in Greenville County Schools by providing resources to help implement projects that immerse students in science, technology, engineering, art, and/or mathematics.  

  • Up to $2000 per award!
  • Grants are open to all Greenville County Schools teachers (grades 4K-12) of any content area (STEM, Humanities, Related Arts, etc.).
  • Apply with curriculum-based projects that will occur during the 2021-2022 academic year.
  • Projects may incorporate aspects of both STEM and art, but a STEM focus must be primary for consideration. Collaboration between subject areas is encouraged.
  • Teachers may consider integrating elements of social and emotional learning and/or virtual teaching resources into project proposals.

Please take time to read through the GRANT GUIDELINES before applying. Through our grant programs, Public Education Partners is committed to fostering more equitable outcomes for students, teachers and schools. With that in mind, the grants review committee strongly considers school demographics such as poverty index level and Title One status when making final funding decisions.

One of PEP’s current organizational priorities is to support the recruitment and retention of great teachers for Greenville County’s public schools.

In honor of our former Executive Director, Grier Mullins, PEP is pleased to offer the Mullins Grant for Quality Teaching.

This grant aims to financially support innovative strategies to help boost teacher retention in schools across Greenville County.

  • Applicants should explore goals related to teacher retention, including but not limited to overall teacher retention, new teacher retention, content-specific teacher retention, and grade-level specific teacher retention.
