ASM Materials Education Foundation Grants
The ASM Materials Education Foundation annually awards 20 grants of $500 each 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.
Describe a hands-on, curriculum-based K-12 project that involves student observation, teamwork, mathematics, and science skills that enhance student awareness of the everyday materials around them. We encourage you to contact local ASM International chapter members for assistance in creating imaginative, original projects that other teachers will want to emulate.
The ASM Materials Education Foundation has been delighted to receive many more proposals than can be funded. To speed the selection process, ONLY those proposals directly addressing materials science will be considered. Proposals will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the Action in Education Committee.
Please Note: A one-page summary report is required for each of the winning proposals upon completion of the project.
