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 of up to $500 to support environmental education for Idaho’s youth. WHO: Educators of all kinds (formal and informal) who work with youth in Idaho. HOW: Email completed applications (application requirements on following page) to eeinquiry@idahoee.org with the subject line ‘Environmental Education Grant Application’.
