About Us

The STEAM (STEM + Arts) chapter gives monthly, no-strings-attached grants to people anywhere in the world dedicated to making the world more awesome through science, technology, engineering, art, and/or mathematics!

The STEAM chapter is going on break from December 1st, 2021 to January 22nd, 2022. Applications submitted between December 1st and January 22nd will not be reviewed or considered for future grants. Please wait until we remove this paragraph before applying.

Questions? Email steam@awesomefoundation.org

Help us out one of two ways:

  • Share this link and encourage others to apply for the grant!
  • Give $100/month and join as a trustee to help fund awesome projects!

How it works

  • The trustees listed below each contribute $100 per month.
  • People with awesome ideas submit an application for the grant.
  • The trustees review and discuss the applications at the end of each month, and pick the best one.
  • The winner is given $1000 (must be able to accept money through PayPal or Venmo).

What we like to see

  • Make us say, “That’s awesome!”
  • Clearly explain where the money will be spent (Hint: "marketing" or "website" is not specific enough).
  • Add photos!
  • Say “PayPal” somewhere in your application so we know you read this and can accept money through this tool.
