Pittsburg, CA — The Dow Chemical Company Community Advisory Panel (CAP) announces the open application period to its Grant Program. This year, Dow will fund a total of $25,000, which was limited to $15,000 only a few years ago.
In 2016, 8 winners were awarded grant money for their STEM related program.
Established in 2006, the annual competitive grant program funds sustainable community service projects in Eastern Contra Costa County with award ranging from $2,500 to $5,000. The awarded money helps specific community needs and solves problems that might otherwise go unresolved without extra monetary support. In addition to helping improve the environment for local residents, the Dow CAP evaluates grant requests to ensure they support hands-on science and math learning, contribute to the community’s success in the areas of educational opportunities or provide environmental protection to East Contra Costa habitats.
The Dow CAP Grant Program is an online application open until September 18, 2017. Winners will be notified in October.
