Wells Fargo Change the Future Grant

SVEF and Wells Fargo are dedicated to improving education in the Silicon Valley. The Wells Fargo Change the Future Grant aims to engage students in computer science who may not otherwise have that exposure.

To apply, schools were asked to create a plan, align the initiatives of a club or class to their STEM goals, develop recruitment strategies, identify measurable outcomes, and explain how the grant would help make computer science sustainable and viable at their school.

Each of the following schools were awarded $10,000:

  • Renaissance Mathson Academy, Alum Rock Union School District

  • Renaissance Fischer Academy, Alum Rock Union School District

  • Downtown College Prep, East Side Union High School District

  • James Lick High School, East Side Union High School District

  • Ocala STEAM Academy, Alum Rock Union School District

  • Sunrise Middle School in San Jose
