Get money from the Navy to start a Hackerspace!

 

Ok, so it’s not as easy as it sounds. This is really only going to be helpful to any of you already familiar with grant proposal writing. The Office of Naval Research has put out an open ended all-call for proposals related to “education programs in STEM”.

ONR is seeking proposals in support of education programs in STEM. The ONR mission of STEM is to foster an interest in, knowledge of, and study in science, technology, engineering and mathematics nationwide to ensure an educated and well-prepared naval and national STEM workforce. In support of this mission, the following four investment priorities have been identified:
● Inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. [Programs that fall mostly within Grades K-10]
● Engage students in STEM-related hands-on learning activities with Naval relevance. [Programs that fall mostly within Grades 3-12]
● Educate students to be well prepared for STEM employment in the Navy and Marine Corps as well as supporting academic institutions and/or the Naval contractor community. [Programs that fall mostly within Higher Education]
● Employ, retain and develop Naval STEM professionals. [Programs that fall mostly within Higher Education and Professional Development]

I’m going to be working with my local Science Museum to put in a proposal for money to start a hackerspace. I recently got to sit in a presentation by ONR and they are very passionate about this and have the money to prove it.
