Grants of up to $5,000 and grants starting at $5,000 to USA sixth through twelfth-grade teachers at public and nonprofit private schools for creative classroom-based projects in math and science. Previous grants have funded mentoring programs, electronics courses, and biochemical research projects.

Toshiba America Foundation accepts applications from teachers who are passionate about making science and mathematics more engaging for their students. Funded projects in grades 6-12 provide students with the opportunity to "do science" in new ways that promise to increase their engagement with the subject matter and improve their learning.

Many successful grantees have designed projects that tap into the natural curiosity of their students, enable students to frame their own scientific questions, and incorporate the expertise of community partners.
