Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead

The Full STEAM Ahead grant, sponsored by the Flint Energies Foundation and Flint Energies, awards money to schools who have developed a creative project that energizes learning in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts and/or mathematics.

The Full STEAM Ahead program distributes grants of $2,000 to PreK-12 public or private schools located in the Co-op’s 17-county service territory. The grants are not for professional development or Smart Board purchases.

All grant money for this program comes from unclaimed capital credits designated for education programs.
