Two Iowa-Missouri Conference schools—Sedalia SDA School in Sedalia, Missouri; and Summit View SDA School in Lee’s Summit, Missouri—are each receiving $5,000 STEM grants from Versacare.

The Versacare board recently voted to fund all STEM grant applications for 2020, amounting to $1.42 million for 189 Adventist schools throughout North America.

Versacare is an independent Adventist healthcare services organization that provides financial grants to Adventist ministries in a variety of areas, including STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) grants for conference-operated elementary and secondary schools within the North American Division. Grant amounts range from $5,000 for small schools with three classrooms or fewer to $10,000 for larger schools.
