Promoting Innovation in Science and Mathematics

Burroughs Wellcome Fund supports teaching professionals in their efforts to provide quality hands-on, inquiry-based activities for their students.  This award provides up to $3,000 for one year to cover the cost of equipment, materials, and supplies.  An additional $1,500 may be requested for professional development related to the implementation of new equipment or use of materials in the classroom.  Awards are made to teaching professionals that hold a professional educator's license to teach in a North Carolina K-12 public school.

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund recognizes the important role that K-12 teachers play in the lives of students by stimulating a passion for science and mathematics innovations. In this time of tight budgets, BWF wants to support teaching professionals in their efforts to provide quality hands-on, inquiry-based activities for their students. BWF launched this program to support North Carolina K-12 teachers in their efforts to promote excitement for science and mathematics in the classroom by providing grants for materials, equipment, and supplies related to the implementation of high quality curriculum and activities in the classroom.
