Building STEAM Grants

The best learning environments shape students into independent, creative thinkers with real-world skills. At Public Education Partners, we believe creative and engaging teaching should not be limited by money and aim to grant teachers the freedom to embrace innovative teaching through the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.

In honor of our former Executive Director, Grier Mullins, PEP is pleased to offer Greenville County Schools (elementary, middle, high, and career centers) an opportunity to apply for the Mullins Grant for Supporting Quality Teaching.
