    2014 Making the Future Afterschool and Summer STEM

    On October 1, Cognizant announced its open application period for its 2014 Making the Future Afterschool and Summer STEM grants program. As part of the company's long-term commitment to finding new ways to advance and support STEM education and career paths, Cognizant awards grants to child-serving U.S. non-profit organizations wishing to run after-school, in-school, and summer Maker programs. Programs must support the mission to inspire young learners in the STEM disciplines by providing fun, hands-on learning opportunities.

    The application period for 2014 grants runs from October 1 through November 15, 2013. Cognizant plans to award up to 25 grants across the U.S. in this grant cycle. The company has already awarded over $4.6 million in STEM grants to date.
