“These grants are critical because we have a real gap in our country right now when it comes to STEM education,” said U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-New Hampshire. “There is a need to try to bring the excitement back to the classroom for STEM education … I commend Bosch for giving support to our local schools for innovative programs to get more of our kids involved with STEM education.”
The STEM grants provided were made possible by the Bosch Community Fund, a corporate foundation that provides financial support to assist individual Bosch operating divisions in charitable giving within those divisions’ local communities. The Bosch Community Fund provides more than $3 million annually in grants to various community nonprofit organizations and educational institutions. The Fund focuses primarily on the enrichment of STEM education and the advancement of environmental sustainability initiatives.
