NEF-SUNY 100%  MODEL K-12 STEM ACADEMY Grant ($100 Million)

by National Education Foundation (NEF), global non-profit leader in K-12 STEM Education
and State University of New York (SUNY), the largest university in the U.S.

Evidence-basedSUNY evaluation shows that most of our students advance one grade level in math/reading in 25-35 learning hours. For example, Somerton, AZ, a severely disadvantaged school district (100% F/R meals, 95% English language learners) students have made more than 2-grade level progress in one year! Many of our School Districts have gone up from the bottom 20% to the top 20% in state test scores in math and reading!  (See

Award: We will select 500 grantees nationally (college) or until we reach 1,000,000 students

Rationale: The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) DOE National Report Card released recently shows that reading scores as compared to 2017 decreased nationally for grades 4 and 8 by 1 and 3 points respectively (NAEP, 2019). We can help your students get ranked much higher next year.
