Description:

Develop a list of quality local speakers on STEM issues willing to speak at schools in Ohio and Michigan. Outside speakers bring "credibility" to the topic. Monies from this grant could help pay speaker fees. Proposed honorarium is $100 plus travel expenses. Could help defray costs of "established" speakers and give exposure to "new" speakers.

Total budget not to exceed $2,000 in the first year and $1,000 in the second year

Funding for future years:

  • Departments of schools willing to support costs for future speakers after seeing the benefits of speakers coming in

  • Sharing speakers with institutions of close proximity
