STEM Corps East
Nichelle E. Shuck
The general purpose of the AmeriCorps State programs is to meet identified needs through service in communities, strengthen the ties that bind communities together, and develop the citizenship and skills of AmeriCorps members (“Members”). Activities funded through this grant must help engage Members of all backgrounds in community-based service that provides a direct and demonstrable benefit valued by the community. Service activities must result in a specific documented service or improvement that otherwise would not be provided with existing funds of volunteers and that does not duplicate the routine functions of or displace paid employees within the Subrecipient organization.
To help all students graduate from high school “Career and College Ready” to pursue and complete degrees leading to employment in STEM related careers.
To engage middle grades students in STEM activities that link classroom learning and real world problem solving, help students to master STEM concepts and skills and be ready to succeed in more rigorous high school STEM courses.

The Subrecipient agrees to provide a minimum match equivalent to 29% of the total expended funds received via this award. This requirement has been waived by CNCS.
