Byline: Journal Record Staff

TULSA The Oklahoma FFA Foundation and Public Service Co. are seeking applications from FFA students for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) After-School Grants.

With support from the AEP Foundation, PSO is providing money for $25,000 in grants to be awarded to Oklahoma FFA chapters in its service area. Grants will range from $1,000 to $5,000.

"We're excited to continue our partnership with FFA to offer hands-on, STEM-related education to students in the areas we serve," said Tiffini Jackson, PSO vice president-external affairs. "These grants will help students learn technical and critical thinking skills that can help set them on a rewarding career path."

The Oklahoma FFA Foundation will be accepting STEM After-School Grants applications between June 3 and July 1. Priority will be given to applications with requests that benefit more than one chapter and will be sustainable over multiple years.

"There are many of our chapters who are limited to learning about technology via the internet and what they see on a screen," said Holly Blakey, Oklahoma FFA Foundation executive director. "We are so excited about these grants that will give chapters the opportunity to have technology at their fingertips. Having equipment in their programs and sharing among programs will allow students hands-on learning with real life technology being used in the agricultural industry."

Grant applications are available at www.okffa.org/foundation.
