Chelsea & Andre Kozaczka Award

Through its Student Program Investment Grant Awards, The Patrick Spann Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of the Chelsea & Andre Kozaczka Award.  

Thanks to the generous donation from the Kozaczkas, approved Partner Organizations are eligible for consideration of grants of $500 to $1000 for programs that serve 7th – 9th grade students who have academic promise but lack the educational and social resources that are important to breaking the barriers to economic advancement. For this award, The Foundation is accepting applications from 501(c)3 not-for-profit organizations serving in the areas of STEM training, mentorship and community service.


The Patrick Spann Foundation’s Student Program Investment Grant Awards are tasked with growing the presence of women, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, and adults, who were raised by low-income families, in the STEM professions and prepare them to rebuild their communities through community service.
