About the Grant Program
Juniper Networks offers a $10,000 grant opportunity through the Greater Lowell Community Foundation to support a nonprofit organization serving youth in the Greater Lowell area including the towns of: Lowell, Westford, Chelmsford, Dracut, Tewksbury, Tyngsborough, and Billerica.
Specifically, eligible organizations are those that serve youth and are providing programs that focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics). There is a preference, not a requirement, that the selected organization use the grant to fund a specific project (rather than general operations) and that the grant is awarded to an organization with an annual budget of less than $1 million.
Juniper is also interested in providing opportunities for their employees to be involved in addressing community issues. The selected nonprofit offers community service opportunities for Juniper employees either at a local Juniper office or at the nonprofit’s site.
