The Foundation for Health Advancement provides grants to encourage and support innovative STEM projects in high schools throughout New Jersey.  We are looking to fund projects that increase students' knowledge and hands-on experience in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math.  


Grants of up to $2,500 are awarded for innovative projects that bring new, exciting experiences to students which may motivate them to pursue STEM majors and careers. 

STEM faculty members and high school STEM clubs supported by faculty members at public or private schools in New Jersey are eligible to apply.

The successful applicants in our 2021 High School STEM Grant Program include projects from: 

Malcolm X Shabazz High School, Newark NJ for "Food and Water SOS"

Steinert High School, Hamilton NJ for "Aquaponics System"

Congratulations to all of the teachers and students whose projects were selected!

"The installation of an aquaponics system will enhance the student experience across many disciplines.  Beyond the standard STEM principles, aquaponics can be related to economics, business, agriculture, and health.  The care and maintenance of the system will encourage teamwork and a sense of community.  I look forward to using this custom aquaponics system to inspire students to become environmentally and socially responsible citizens and to perhaps pursue a STEM career."

"This grant gives our computer science students greater opportunity to share their skills and passion for computer science and robotics with elementary school students."

"Neuroscience is a topic that excites many of our students, although the opportunities to directly explore it in a high school laboratory setting are few and far between.  This grant will provide our students with the advanced technology to allow for incredible, hands-on experiments with real, live neurons at work!"
