RALEIGH – From the Highlands Biological Station to the Museum of Coastal Carolina, from Grandfather Mountain to Port Discover, 55 science centers across the state have received $6.3 million in special grants under the Science Museum Grants Program from North Carolina.

Funding for these special grants is made possible by the U.S. Federal Bailout Act, in accordance with 2021 State Budget guidelines. Grants were awarded based on state-legislated criteria that promote priorities of the state government, with the primary aim of improving STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education opportunities for the public, especially in low-resource communities.
