About this funder:



Toshiba America Foundation (TAF) grants fund the projects ideas and materials teachers need to innovate in their math and science classrooms. TAF is interested in funding projects designed by teachers or small teams of teachers for use in their own schools.

Toshiba America Foundation believes science and mathematics are exciting fields in which all students can succeed with the proper tools and instruction.

Toshiba America Foundation grants support public and nonprofit private schools throughout the United States. Founded in 1990, with support from Toshiba Corporation and the Toshiba America Group Companies, Toshiba America Foundation (TAF) is dedicated to helping classroom teachers make mathematics and science learning fun and successful for students in U.S. schools.

K-5 grade teachers are invited to apply for the Toshiba America Foundation grant to help bring an innovative hands-on project into their own classroom.

With a Toshiba America Foundation grant, elementary teachers can bring their best new teaching ideas to life. Many successful grantees have designed projects that tap into the natural curiosity of their students, enable students to frame their own scientific questions, and incorporate the expertise of community partners.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
