MIND Research Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to ensure that all students are mathematically equipped to solve the world’s most challenging problems. MIND in Kind is our way as a social impact organization of giving back to our partners, as well as encouraging schools to implement ST Math with fidelity. When a school applies for MIND in Kind support, they must review MIND’s recommended implementation model and agree to implement to the best of their ability in order to receive the MIND in Kind funding. MIND in Kind support is distinct from the ST Math School Grants Program, which applies funding from our philanthropic partners to certain schools and districts that meet donor-specific criteria.
Schools and districts have successfully used all different types of funding to bring ST Math to their students, including federal funds, state or local funds, and private or foundation funds. Learn more about additional funding sources for ST Math
Year one professional learning lays a firm foundation for a successful implementation of ST Math. Your subscription will include two virtual sessions designed to help you get the most of your experience, and we recommend these are held in the first few weeks of an implementation. In year two and beyond, schools and/or districts will be able to select one virtual professional learning offering per year that best fits their instructional goals. Delivery of offerings shall be dependent upon the requirements of the customer as well as the offering selected.
ST Math PreK/TK offers a full math curriculum for early learners. The curriculum subscription is $3,500 per site per year and includes professional learning.
ST Math Immersion is a non-traditional program that provides students with a rich mathematical environment. Use ST Math Immersion as an intensive program for extending the year, as a school year jumpstart, or as a summer program. Content in grades K-2 is focused on operations and algebraic thinking. Content in grades 3-5 is focused on fractions. The instructional resources include pre- and post-assessments, rotation stations through ST Math’s visual models and manipulatives, number sense games, small group instruction, a project using engineering design principles, and whole-group lessons. The program costs $7,000 per site and includes professional learning.
This NSF competitive funding opportunity seeks to significantly enhance the learning and teaching of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computer science (STEM) by preK-12 students and teachers, through research and development of STEM education innovations and approaches. Projects in the DRK-12 program build on fundamental research in STEM education and prior research and development efforts that provide theoretical and empirical justification for proposed projects. Projects should result in research-informed and field-tested outcomes and products that inform teaching and learning.
ITEST supports projects that engage students in technology-rich experiences that: (1) increase awareness of and interest in STEM and ICT occupations; (2) motivate students to pursue appropriate education pathways to those occupations; and (3) develop STEM-specific disciplinary content knowledge and practices that promote critical thinking, reasoning, and communication skills needed for entering the STEM and ICT workforce of the future.
STEM+C supports research on how students learn to think computationally to solve interdisciplinary problems in science and mathematics. The program supports research and development that builds on evidence-based teacher preparation or professional development activities that enable teachers to provide excellent instruction on the integration of computation and STEM disciplines. Proposals should describe projects that are grounded in prior evidence and theory, are innovative or potentially transformative, and that will generate and build knowledge about the integration of computing and one or more STEM disciplines at the preK-12 level.
AISL seeks to advance new approaches to and evidence-based understanding of the design and development of STEM learning opportunities for the public in informal environments; provide multiple pathways for broadening access to and engagement in STEM learning experiences; advance innovative research on and assessment of STEM learning in informal environments; and engage the public of all ages in learning STEM in informal environments.
Funds are granted for charitable, scientific, literary or educational purposes or for the identification, ongoing evaluation, education of and services for children and adults with learning disabilities.
To increase understanding and expertise in fostering support of multi-language development when teaching mathematics. The proposed project must explicitly support the implementation of equitable and rigorous mathematics teaching that incorporates students' languages and cultures in their learning of mathematics.
To encourage the innovative use of technology and other tools to "help teachers and students visualize and concretize mathematics abstractions..." (Principles to Actions). When used appropriately, they can enhance other effective teaching and promote meaningful learning opportunities for students. The focus of the proposal should be on the mathematics being taught and innovative uses of the tools and technology.

MIND Research Institute and our philanthropic partners are dedicated to ensuring that all students are mathematically equipped to solve the world's most challenging problems.
The ST Math School Grants Program provides funds to our education partners to help cover the cost of the program. We have over $1,000,000 in funding from our partners to help us reach the next 1,000,000 students.
Currently approximately 20% of ST Math schools receive donor funding from MIND’s philanthropic partners.
