STEM Scale-Up Programs

The Iowa STEM Scale-Up Program was launched as a way to meet the Governor's STEM Advisory Council's top priority: Increasing student interest and achievement in STEM across the state.


The Iowa Governor’s STEM Advisory Council will begin accepting applications from educators for the 2021-22 STEM Scale-Up Program menu on January 2021.  PreK-12 public and private schools, afterschool programs and other educational organizations are encouraged to apply for the programs to be implemented during the 2020-2021 academic year.

Award recipients will be announced April 2021.

The selected STEM Scale-Up Programs are listed in the right column.  

Schools (public and nonpublic), after-school programs and other active learning communities serving students in grades preK through 12 can apply for these STEM Scale-Up Programs.
