NAAEE Global E-STEM Award Program 2024

The North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) and Pratt & Whitney believe that the Global E-STEM Award Program is a great way for young people to build the problem-solving skills needed to address today’s environmental challenges. The Global E-STEM Awards program will provide funding of up to $15,000 USD for Innovation Grants and $50,000 USD for Excellence Prizes to nonprofit organizations and their partners for E-STEM programs that engage students ages 11–22

Specifically, this opportunity seeks to recognize programs that have successfully engaged students aged 11–22, particularly those considered underrepresented in STEM (see box), in meaningful learning experiences that increase STEM skills (science, technology, engineering, and math) through environmental problem solving (the “E” in E-STEM). Since the overall goal of this program is to increase students’ environmental literacy (see box) through STEM learning, build STEM interest and skills, and create pathways to environmental careers, applicants will be asked to describe how they plan to use the funds to either replicate or expand their successful program to reach additional students.


Awardees will receive:

  • Funding to support their E-STEM programs.
  • Global recognition of their organization’s work through NAAEE and Pratt & Whitney’s platforms.
  • Professional development and peer learning opportunities with E-STEM awardees.
  • Access to the NAAEE network and Pratt & Whitney nonprofit community.
