Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $500 to USA K-12 teachers for educational classroom projects. Funding is intended for the development and implementation of innovative, creative science-related projects and lessons. Eligible activities are hands-on, curriculum-based, and involve student observation, teamwork, mathematics, and science skills that enhance student awareness of the everyday materials around them. Only those proposals directly addressing materials science will be considered.

The ASM Materials Education Foundation annually awards grants to help K-12 teachers bring the real world of materials science into their classrooms. “Living in a Material World” grants recognize creativity and enhance awareness of materials science and the role that materials play in society.

Members of ASM International know how rewarding it is to develop and produce the metals, glasses, ceramics, semiconductors, and polymers that are at the heart of all new systems. The ASM Materials Education Foundation assists teachers in bringing that understanding of the importance of materials to their students.

The ASM Foundation is committed to working with and supporting teachers through “Living in a Material World” K-12 teacher grants. With a network of local Chapters across North America, ASM members offer to work closely with local teachers to develop and implement various lessons.
