With nearly 100 volunteers spending a day a week in K-12 classrooms in the D.C. area, and a budding program in Seattle, AAAS is committed to working with scientists and engineers to make scientific literacy possible for all students. Now, thanks to a generous donation from a AAAS Fellow, we are ready to grow these efforts into a nationwide network. Toward that end, AAAS is announcing the pilot stage of the AAAS National STEM Volunteer Program. In 2014, AAAS will award five seed grants of up to $15,000 each to members working with non-profits in their community to bring scientists and engineers into local classrooms in an ongoing and meaningful way. In addition to funding, AAAS will provide resources for developing, implementing, and sustaining the volunteer effort. The deadline for submitting a letter of intent is November 18, 2013, and the full application deadline is December 20, 2013. All grants will be awarded by February 28, 2014. http://membercentral.aaas.org/volunteer/ansvp
