Grant Description
Grants of up to $500 to Georgia and South Carolina K-12 teachers in eligible counties for STEM-related education projects and supplies. Funding is intended for educational programs in any STEM topic; preference will be given to those programs that promote greater comprehension of nuclear safety, technology, and fundamentals.

Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness (CNTA) is a nonprofit organization that advocates for all aspects of nuclear technologies. Their mission is to educate the public by providing objective information on the value of nuclear technology with respect to health, economy, environment, and national security. To accomplish this mission, they seek to foster interest among students in STEM-related topics.

In 2024, CNTA wants to partner with area educators to provide innovative instruction to area students. CNTA has expanded its educator grant program to facilitate this educational outreach. Grants will be awarded for winning applications teaching all subjects and grades pre-K-12. The grants can be used to fund a project in any area of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics, with preference given to those that promote an increased understanding of atomic and nuclear fundamentals, radiation and nuclear materials safety, and applications of nuclear technology.

Recommendations for Completing the Proposal:

  • Teachers are encouraged to work with their colleagues on a cooperative project.
  • Proposals are encouraged to leverage and make use of existing resources such as kits that are available at the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center.
  • Proposals are encouraged to utilize subject matter expert volunteers available through CNTA (CNTA has a large network of volunteers that can be used as needed to support projects).
