    Idaho National Laboratory (INL)


    INL is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's complex of national laboratories. The laboratory performs work in each of the strategic goal areas of DOE: energy, national security, science and environment. INL is the nation's leading center for nuclear energy research and development. INL is managed by Battelle Energy Alliance for the Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy.

    Idaho National Laboratory's K-12 STEM program looks to cultivate the eastern Idaho STEM landscape by leveraging partnerships and resources to grow STEM opportunities for all, and works toward the alignment of future workforce needs with STEM Education in Eastern Idaho.


    History of Funding

    Funding for INL's STEM grants is provided by Battelle Energy Alliance. Over the past decade, INL has awarded nearly $5 million in STEM grants to support STEM education in Idaho.

    Additional Information

    INL accepts proposals in four categories:

    1. COMPETITION GRANT - The INL STEM Competition Grant was designed to support eastern Idaho students, grades K-12, participating in STEM competitions throughout the state. Applications must be completed by a school-level representative on behalf of the students benefiting from the grant. Each school is allowed one schoolwide application. Allowable uses of funding:
      1. Registration fees
      2. Student supplies
      3. Travel to and from event within the state of Idaho
    2. CLASSROOM GRANT - The K-12 Classroom Grant is available for eastern Idaho educators and administrators to apply for funding to improve student understanding of and learning experiences in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Awards will be granted for innovative and creative projects in STEM subjects. These projects should focus on classroom-level instruction that is unique to the needs of the students. This grant seeks proposals that are distinctive and based on individual classroom needs. Grant requests vary, with a maximum award of $2,000. The funding should be used to cover needed project materials, admission fees, and/or travel for a field trip.
    3. COMMUNITY STEM AND CAREER AWARENESS GRANT - The Community STEM and Career Awareness Grant is designed to support publicly funded and nonprofit organizations. Up to $750 is available to selected applicants wishing to host a community STEM event focused on raising awareness about STEM education and career options. The event needs to target not only students, but also their parents/guardians, industry and the community at large. The event could focus specifically on math or science or be in celebration of STEM in general. Priority will be given to organizations holding events in underserved communities including rural and Spanish-speaking populations. Additional points will be awarded to applications that address these specific underserved populations. Applications that note they have a Spanish-speaking staff or community member willing to commit to the project and assist with the event be awarded extra points on review. Note, eligibility for this program further includes publicly funded educational organizations such as schools, libraries, after-school educational programs or educational nonprofits/community centers.
    4. OUT-OF-SCHOOL STEM PROGRAM GRANT - The Idaho National Laboratory K-12 STEM Program values organizations dedicated to STEM education in eastern Idaho in settings outside of the classroom. In addition to our more traditional school and classroom grants, we offer a competitive grant to support eastern Idaho organizations with STEM programs that serve K-12 students in settings outside of the classroom. This funding should serve three purposes: broaden student impact, increase student resources, and encourage student involvement in STEM activities. A strong application reflects engaging activities that are hands-on, collaborative and relevant. Programs should provide students with age-appropriate real-world problems and solutions using STEM subjects.
