BreakThru Mini-Grant applicants may request any amount up to $5,000 for one STEM-related program or project conducted during the period from October 2009 through July 2010.

Applications may exceed the annual funds that may be available for mini-grant requests. We regret that awards may be approved in amounts less than requested, and many deserving grant proposals may be declined.

The application period for this year's Mini-Grant Program is closed.

The program was a two-year pilot, and during this time the Lab received several creative proposals designed to promote science, technology, engineering and math for middle school students from diverse communities.

Overall, however, we received fewer applications than we anticipated from organizations competing for the available funds. As a result, the Lab has decided to discontinue the Mini-Grant program. We thank all those who submitted applications, and hope that those who received funding are very successful in their missions to support STEM learning.
