Welcome to the the STEMworks proposal website, a portal for STEM learning programs that are interested in applying to Change the Equation's STEMworks database of effective STEM learning programs.

STEMworks is a leading resource for businesses that are looking for proven programs that meet their philanthropic priorities. It houses an expanding number of STEM learning programs that have met CTEq's rigorous Design Principlesand Rubric for Effective STEM Philanthropy. Business leaders, other funders, and STEM advocates search STEMworks for programs that are most likely to help them maximize the impact of their investments.

STEMworks is open for applications! We will accept proposals from March 5, 2015 through Thursday, April 16th at 4pm Mountain Time. This year, change the equation is collaborating with Colorado STEM to solicit proposals and review programs for STEMworks. As a result, programs from Colorado will submit proposals through a Colorado-specific application portal:

  1. Colorado: to learn about how to apply through the Colorado STEMworks program, click here.
  2. All other states: If you would like to learn about the proposal process for programs from any other state, click here.

In 2014, organizations in Arizona and Iowa collaborated with Change the Equation to solicit and review programs for STEMworks. Change the Equation may announce new Arizona and Iowa collaborations in 2015. In the meantime, programs that sever students in Arizona and Iowa should apply through the national STEMworks portal.

STEMworks was created in collaboration with WestEd, an independent, nonprofit research, development, and service organization.
