Google Roots In Science And Engineering (RISE) scholarship award, 2012/2013

Scholarship Description: Every year the Google RISE Team is inspired by the work you do to impact students through creative and engaging STEM initiatives. We are excited to bring together another amazing group of organizations for the 2013 Awards. Google RISE – Roots in Science and Engineering – Awards are designed to promote and support Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) and Computer Science (CS) education initiatives. We grant awards to organizations working with K-12 (primary & secondary schools) and university students to provide enrichment programs in these fields.

Google believes that technology will continue to play an important role in shaping our future, and the youth of today will help innovate and drive these technologies for years to come. We hope that all students will one day have the chance to reach their potential and achieve great things in science. To that end, we aspire to help students take one step closer to achieving their potential by offering organizational growth and development opportunities through the Google RISE Awards.

Award Worth: Award amounts range from $5,000 – $25,000 USD.

Eligibility Organizations from around the globe who are working to promote and support Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), as well as Computer Science (CS) education initiatives at the K-12 / Pre-University and University (US only) levels with an emphasis on increasing engagement of socioeconomically disadvantaged students, girls, and under-represented minorities are eligible for consideration. See below for a full list of eligible countries.

Ideal K-12 / Pre-University & university STEM programs or projects should:

– Inspire excitement in STEM and CS
– Improve, advance and enrich students’ understanding of STEM and/or CS education
– Include hands-on learning activities in STEM and/or CS education

Program Guidelines:

– Google RISE Awards are specifically geared towards STEM and CS educational and outreach programs around the world
– Applications are encouraged from organizations and educational institutions regardless of the socio-economic status, race, or gender of the students they serve
– Please note that the RISE team is not able to provide one on one consultations during the review process (both prior to applying and after applications have been submitted) to ensure no bias is given to specific organizations

Community Engagement:

– We ask that RISE Award recipients actively participate in our constantly growing RISE community of organizations, which includes attendance at a Global Summit, monthly communication across social channels (email, G+, video chat) regarding pressing EdTech topics, and sharing of best practices
– Google is a local community-centric company and we aim to partner with RISE Award recipients to support local programs and events held throughout the year with volunteers, guest speakers, and judges where Google offices are present
– We ask for feedback and program updates from our RISE recipients to help constantly shape and develop the RISE Awards for future organizations joining the community

Frequency of Funding: Applicants are welcome to apply annually if not selected for a RISE Award. If awarded a grant in 2013, Google will limit funding for a 1 year period after participation in our RISE community. After that one year break, applicants are welcome to re-apply in 2014 for additional funding to be granted in 2015.
