Education Grants

Anderson County teachers, how can we help?

ORAU is committed to K-12 science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in a number of ways, including Extreme Classroom Makeover, programs from K-12 student and professional development for K-12 educators.

ORAU directly supports the schools in our own backyard by offering education grants to Anderson County educators. Since 2002, ORAU has funded more than $500,000 in grants to area schools for projects that complement ORAU’s mission of enriching STEM education programs.

Previous grant recipients have purchased iPads, laptops, Math and Movement kits, 3D printers and other technology to complement classroom instruction.
