UL is a premier global independent safety science and engineering services company that has championed progress for 120 years. UL's 11,000 professionals are guided by the UL mission to promote safer working and living environments for everyone, everywhere.
NAAEE is proud to be a UL partner. UL extends its support to numerous programs that encourage innovative applications of science, technology, engineering, and math, as they seek to inspire tomorrow's generation of game changers. With their strong focus on STEM and environmental safety, UL has proven itself to be an invaluable partner in NAAEE's E-STEM efforts.
In 2013, UL awarded NAAEE with a research grant for exploring methods to integrate environmental education into STEM (E-STEM). Since the completion of that research, NAAEE and UL have partnered again to launch the UL Innovative Education Award, a first-of-its-kind initiative designed to invest $250,000 in environmental and STEM education, sustainable communities, and youth empowerment. The UL Innovative Education Award offers recognition grants to innovative nonprofit programs in the United States and Canada. The grants are designed to help these programs increase their impact and accelerate their efforts to inspire a passion for STEM education and the environment among youth.
