Innovation Grants aim to strengthen STEM-education opportunities in tri-state region

grant2019PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Forty-three school districts across southwestern Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia and eastern Ohio were awarded more than a quarter-million dollars in grant funding today through a partnership led by Chevron, EQT, and the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.
