Applications for the 2018 Battelle STEM Grants Program are now open.

Our grants program seeks to fund programs that:

  2. Integrate to modern academic standards to better prepare participants for success back at school
  3. Serve the Central Ohio region where Battelle is headquartered

Please note: Per Battelle's obligations as a nonprofit organization, only programs in Central Ohio will be considered for this grant. We define Central Ohio as Franklin county and all adjacent counties. 


In 2017, we profiled three programs that started and sustained their programs with support from Battelle. Here's what they had to say.

Teen Open Studio is a twice weekly, drop-in program offered free to teens aged 13-19. It provides a space where participants can exhibit creative, artistic thinking and benefit from peer collaboration, mentor guidance and workshops with professionals.


Shadowbox Live will expand its partnership with Columbus State Community College to teach American Sign Language (ASL) students artistic interpretation and how to physically and emotionally embrace the characters performing on stage to expand theatrical interpreting services to the deaf community.


Partnering with middle schools in Licking County, The Works: Ohio Center for History, Art and Technology expands creative out-of-school opportunities for students to explore STEM concepts and careers while expanding the program’s reach to more than 200 students.
