STEM4Creativity Challenge

STEM4Girls is honored and excited to announce a grant opportunity for students interested in STEM projects; Science Technology, Engineering, and Math. In order to promote creativity in the STEM field, STEM4Girls will be assisting students with up to $250 to work on a unique STEM-based project that follows the guidelines listed below. These grants are available for students that identify as female, or with at least one student identifying as female within the team.

 Three categories including elementary, middle-school and high/secondary schools are eligible to participate. Each team can have 4-10 students with at least one female. 

Project Proposals
The project proposals will be reviewed by the experts and 5 outstanding projects from each category will be funded for completing the proposed research. Students may also submit a report at the end of the challenge period to get more funding for their future projects. A potential grant of a maximum of $250 (depending on the impact of the project) will be given to the first-place entry selected from the outstanding proposals in each category. The selected projects will be given the opportunity to participate and to do presentations to the scientific community and students at the International Research Conference for Children (IRCC-2024).

STEM4Creativity is a global challenge made to encourage fostering interest in research within STEM fields. This year’s challenge is intentionally broad so that students can use their imagination and research unique topics.

To make STEM4Creativity a success, STEM4Girls is collaborating with the Global Young Researchers Academy (GYRA)

What is STEM?
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It represents an educational and professional approach that emphasizes these four key disciplines. STEM education and careers are centered around these fields and their interconnectedness, aiming to prepare students and professionals for roles that require expertise in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This approach is essential in addressing the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly evolving, technology-driven world.
