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-based: SUNY 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 https://www.stemnef.org/evidence/)
100% Grant: 100 students in your College will receive top-rated individualized learning software mapped to your state standards, PD, weekly SUNY evaluations and SUNY certificates.
Award: We will select 500 grantees nationally (college) or until we reach 1,000,000 students
Deadline to apply: October 30, 2020
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.
Our Vision Goal: The goal of the NEF STEM+ Academies is to better prepare students for college and the workforce. That means providing students with core skills in ELA, Math, and Digital Literacy, which provide a foundation for dealing with complex, real-world problems in STEM areas in our society. The goal of the NEF-SUNY VISION FOR AMERICA, announced recently after consultations with the White House and Congress, is to provide support to 1 million students.

- Individualized learning in Digital Literacy mapped to nationally accepted IC3 standards.
- Certificate from SUNY (State University of NY, the largest University in the U.S.) the course developer.
