The A+ Coalition, an initiative of the Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce, is offering the opportunity to apply for a STEAM in Education grant to all Natchitoches Parish educators. Up to $7,000 will be awarded to an educator for innovative STEAM initiatives used to advance learning and enhance the skills of students. The A+ Coalition opened grant applications June 1 and will close applications July 31.
Applicants must be currently employed by a school in Natchitoches Parish, serving students in Pre-K through 12th grade in an educational setting. Any educator may apply, and the number of applications are not limited; however, all applications must be submitted through the school principal. Upon receipt, the Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce staff and the A+ Coalition Committee members will conduct a thorough study of each application. The grant will be awarded in early August.
