U.S. nonprofit community organizations in Suffolk County, New York, may apply for one annual BreakThru Mini-Grant to help support one program or project that encourages interests and/or strengthens skills related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with 10 to 15 year old youth from populations traditionally underrepresented in STEM-related careers, such as: African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos(as), and Native Americans.

The Community Relations Office may contact and visit the point of contact or chief officer of the organization to further discuss the program.

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.
