The Ophelia Project


Two girls in front of computer.Mini-grants are awarded to girl-serving science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) focused programs to support collaboration, assessment activities, and projects related to addressing gaps and overlaps in service, and sharing promising practices.

Numerous organizations provide valuable but uncoordinated activities and support services related to motivating and supporting girls’ interest in STEM careers. These mini-grants are designed to build collaboration between existing programs and organizations in order to encourage girls to pursue STEM-related educational programs and careers.

In order to apply for a mini-grant:

  • At least two programs from different organizations must collaborate on the mini-grant project.
  • All programs/organizations collaborating on the mini-grant must be registered in the Program Directory.

Mini-grants will be available via current collaboratives as well as for organizations not currently located in an area served by a collaborative. Information and an application will be available in October 2007. This first round of mini-grants is designed to serve collaborative projects implementing in Spring and Summer of 2008.

A sample of previous mini-grants can be found here.
