PATHS STEAM Education Grant

Creating visibility is essential, but addressing the financial barriers that LGBTQ+ individuals face when choosing their career paths is equally important. We understand that while STEAM careers offer financial stability, they also require significant resources to pursue. Through the PATHS STEAM Educational Grant program, we are committed to removing these financial barriers and empowering more LGBTQ+ individuals to enter STEAM fields successfully.

To be eligible for this grant, individuals must:

  1. Identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community
  2. Be 18 years or older
  3. Be able to show acceptance or participation in a STEAM educational program
  4. Have an address within the United States or a U.S. territory
  5. Selected grant recipients must commit to participating in the PATHS Mentorship Program for a minimum of 6 months from receiving their grant funds
  6. Not have received a PATHS STEAM Educational Grant in the last 2 years.
  7. Agree to participate in 3 and 6 month impact surveys.

The PATHS STEAM Educational Grant is now live and will be accepting applications until June 14th, 2024 at 11:59pm ET. Applicants can apply for up to $5,000 in grant support. Applicants must specify intended use of grant money and will be asked to show information regarding program and supply costs.
