TIES is applying to the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) and would like to work with Ecosystem sites that have military base interactions. We believe the ecosystem framework is an ideal mechanism for providing AEOP programs to children in underserved populations and children of military personnel and our work together fits the opportunity well.
See more about the AEOP opportunity below:
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVE: The U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) through its cooperative agreement (COA) with Battelle is investigating new and innovative ways to form mutually beneficial relationships with likeminded organizations and technical associations that have similar STEM goals, specifically serving students from underserved populations and military dependents. In collaboration with STEM partners and by sharing information, leveraging strong STEM networks, and building on already existing relationships, AEOP intends to promote its portfolio of opportunities to better meet objectives, maximize impact, and provide more enriching STEM opportunities for students. The AEOP’s intent is twofold:
1. to promote its portfolio of STEM opportunities within the framework of an organization’s existing STEM programming and where applicable, implement or integrate AEOP elements into that organization’s specific programming;
2. to expand partnerships with technical associations enabling more AEOP program participants to engage in scientific meetings/technical symposia to showcase their STEM achievements.
The intent of this funding is straightforward: to support strategic initiatives that increase participation in programs within the AEOP portfolio by underserved and underrepresented students and/or military dependents to broaden their participation in STEM and have diverse participation in our competitive programs that reflect our nations demographics.4 years, 3 months ago Norman DemetriusParticipant
