Grants support pre-engineering programs
Two grant opportunities announced today help K-12 schools in Oregon boost pre-engineering courses and activites. The Oregon University System and the Engineering and Technology Industry Council today announced the latest round of two grants:
- The eCHAMP program, which pays for coaches and mentors for engineering and technology teams; and
- Start-up money for Project Lead the Way and its pre-engineering curricula.
Both grants help prepare students for university-level engineering programs. The deadlines to apply are Oct. 11 for the 2010-2011 eCHAMP grant and Jan. 14, 2011 for the 2011-2012 eCHAMP and Project Lead the Way grants.
