The Idaho Environmental Education Association (IdEEA) offers Environmental Education Grants to support environmental education for Idaho’s youth.

We invite proposals from educators of all kinds for projects that help children learn more about environmental education and/or enhance children’s connection with nature. Grant funds can be used for field trip or bus money, to bring environmental educators into classrooms, to expand offerings in community programs, for teachers to develop or purchase new materials, and more. We are open to ideas and encourage both formal and informal educators to come up with proposals. Special consideration will be given to projects that provide hands-on learning opportunities for youth and can provide a resource for other educators.
  • WHAT: Grants will be awarded on a regional basis within the state of Idaho to support environmental education for Idaho’s youth. Up to $500 in grants is currently available per region (see attached map for region boundaries).
  • WHO: Educators of all kinds (formal and informal) who work with youth in Idaho.
  • HOW: Email completed applications to grants@idahoee.org with the subject line ‘Environmental Education Grant Application’.
  • WHEN: Completed applications must be received by March 30, 2018, to be considered. All applicants will be notified of our funding decisions by April 16, 2018. Successful applicants will have until April 1, 2019, to complete their project.
CONDITIONS OF FUNDING: As a condition of funding, grant recipients must provide a project update by February 1, 2019, and a final report by April 1, 2019, at the conclusion of the project. Updates and final reports will be submitted to grants@idahoee.org so we may share your success at our conference and on our website in order to provide ideas and inspiration to other educators.
  • Project update: Grant recipients will be required to share information about their project by February 1, 2019, so that IdEEA may share project updates at the annual conference. Grant recipients will be encouraged to present a display board or poster session at the conference and will be offered a reduced registration rate for their participation.
  • Final report (due by April 1, 2019): Grant recipients will be required to submit final materials (brief written report, photos, student work, blog post, etc.) at the conclusion of their project. Final materials will be posted on the IdEEA website.
