Materials Science Education Grants

New outreach grant opportunities now available! Teachers and members of the community can now use the new Online Grant Application Center to view and apply for grants that help fund Materials Science education in the local community and beyond.

The Ceramic and Glass Industry Foundation currently offers two types of grants:

🚀 Kit Grant

This grant allows applicants to propose outreach or classroom projects focused around CGIF’s Materials Science Kits. Applicants can request Materials Science Classroom Kits, Mini Kits, or a combination of the two kit types, plus supplementary funding up to $600.

Kit grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Apply today!


🔥 Project Grant

This grant allows applicants to propose creative projects that expand Materials Science education projects in their community. Each applicant can request funding for up to $2,500 for their project, which should be directly applicable to expanding Materials Science education or training the next generation of glass and ceramic professionals.

Applications for the 2024 Project Grant are now open!  Submit your Project Grant by August 30, 2024 for consideration. Applicants will be notified about their application status in October 2024.
