Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative
Mini-Grant Program

Request for Proposals

The Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative (KGSC) seeks to convince Kentucky girls, their parents and their teachers that careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are exciting, desirable, and attainable.

KGSC will award mini-grants for seed funding for new projects in all areas of STEM and in cooperation with the National Girls STEM Collaborative (NGCP). Projects must expose girls to STEM activities and to successful female STEM professionals so that girls gain exposure to empowering role models.
