WEX Foundation is pleased to announce finalization of a new grant award received from NASA valued at $750K.

The New Worlds program uses our partner organization, Communities In Schools (CIS) national network, active in 25 states with 131 CIS affiliates serving at-risk students in over 363 schools districts and 2,300 K-12 sites as the venue for student participation in our Launchpad and Space Clubs program model, developed by Communities In Schools of San Antonio who will lead the effort for CIS.
