PM Knowledgeable Youth Grantmaking

PMIEF awards grants for innovative initiatives that prepare PM Knowledgeable Youth for 21st century success.


PMIEF awards grants to nonprofit organizations that strengthen teaching and learning globally through initiatives that integrate project management into secondary school curricula.

These initiatives enhance teachers’ instructional abilities and students’ outcomes by helping them acquire and apply project management knowledge to both classroom-based and related extracurricular education, especially that which is project-based. This grantmaking strategy allows PMIEF to support both young people’s immediate and long-term success as well as teachers’ professional development.
