Since its inception, AUSTIN YES has made a commitment to serve as many students as possible. Recently we created YES Grants which focus on STEM, innovation, or development of programs related to science and math.
YES Grants are open to area public, private, or charter elementary, middle and high schools and 501(c)3 non-profits with a youth focus.
Applications will be accepted until October 1, 2021

P.A.M. Media Outreach (Non-profit) – $4,000
