Technical Assistance Information
MiSTEM Network Advisory Council Grant
Under Section 99s(3) and (4) in the fiscal year 2022 School Aid Act, $2,700,000 is provided to fund grants recommended by the MiSTEM Advisory Council for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) programs in Michigan.
The 2021-22 MiSTEM Advisory Council Grant will coordinate statewide actors, activities and STEMworks programs designed to move forward the State STEM Strategy. To accomplish this, the following statewide action areas are identified as necessary to move forward a shared state STEM definition and vision through high-quality STEM learning experiences.
The MiSTEM Advisory Council Grant Program will:
- Elevate Mathematics as the language of STEM and a tool for STEM exploration.
- Ensure that students have Science and Engineering Literacy as a 21st century skill.
- Emphasize the importance of and expand access to high-quality Computer Science experiences.
Each action area must also connect to career exploration in formal and informal K-12 education settings across the state.
The Michigan Department of Education, on behalf of the MiSTEM Advisory Council, is releasing a Request for Fiscals (RFF) for each action area. The fiscal will have the responsibility of working with regional and statewide partners to develop a 5-year action and funding plan to accomplish the goal of the action area for which they are the fiscal. Eligible applicants are local school districts, intermediate school districts and institutions of higher education.
- Request for Fiscals available in FormSite: November 4, 2021
- FormSite Applications due at 5:00 p.m.: November 24, 2021
