Grant funding available for distressed county high schools With budget approval from the Governor’s Office of Appalachia and the Appalachian Regional Commission, the OACHE will have funds available to award several OACHE Rural STEMM grants for the 2010-11 academic year to high schools. The grants are funded 80% with a 20% in-kind and/or cash match needed from the participating schools (match cannot be federal funds). The award amount will range from $5000 to $8000 dollars for each successful application.
The OACHE Rural STEMM Project will target high schools currently serving students within the six ARC-designated Distressed Counties (Athens, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Pike, and Vinton). The OACHE project allows individual high schools within these six counties to apply for funding to implement a college-access program specifically addressing STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Medical Related) areas.
