The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum is accepting applications for its inaugural Teacher Innovator Institute. Participants will spend two weeks in Washington, D.C., working with education and STEM experts to explore the connections between informal STEM education and authentic learning. Each attendee will develop an individual project to take back to their school. There is no cost for teachers to participate — travel, food, lodging and supplies are all provided.


UELMA has selected an organization to receive our service project funds for 2017.  At the UELMA Conference on Friday, March 3rd, we will donate our service project funds to Youthlinc!  Youthlinc is a Utah-based 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to creating lifetime humanitarians by offering students and mentors local and international service experiences.  Funds donated to Youthlinc serve double duty.  Young people here at home are involved in local service projects.  Our youth can also apply to go to Peru to help build the library.  Click here for more about the previous work on the Santa Isabel Library Project.youthlinc-peru

Searchable Portals for Federally Sponsored Opportunities for STEM Undergraduate and Graduate Students

Are you looking for federally sponsored STEM education training and funding opportunities? The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science, along with the participating agencies in the National Science and Technology Council’s Committee on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education, and in collaboration with Science.gov, have launched a pair of Web-based portals for undergraduate and graduate students.

Student users can search the portal for a range of opportunities that they can apply for directly, such as research internships and fellowships. Likewise, academic institutions can search for federal funding opportunities to establish innovative training programs for undergraduates or graduate students.
