AIAA Mission: AIAA advances the state of aerospace, engineering, and technical leadership.

Earn up to $200 for Your Science and Math Programs Support may be on the way for your classroom budget. As an AIAA Educator Associate, you’re invited to apply for a Classroom Grant from the AIAA Foundation.

Here’s how it works. Are you a K-12 teacher who develops or applies science, mathematics, and technology in your curriculum? If the answer is “yes,” you may qualify for a grant of up to $200 per individual request to supplement your learning program. Each school is limited to up to $1,000 per calendar year.

So Many Activities You Can

Support Use your grant for classroom demonstration kits and science supplies, math and science software, supplies for making flying objects (what kid can resist the chance to build and launch a rocket?), supplies for robotic programs, and other materials to help you make science, mathematics, and technology come alive in your classroom. Preference is given to grants that align with the AIAA mission. Please note that grants will not be considered for computer hardware, printers, cameras, equipment and general math and science supplies not tied to a specific lesson plan.
