Grants with Upcoming Deadlines
The Chesapeake Bay Trust Mini Grant Program for Environmental Education is designed to engage students in activities that increase their awareness and involvement in the restoration and protection of the Chesapeak Bay and its local streams and rivers. Grants of $5,000 will be awarded to schools and environmental education-focused organizations that seek to: (1) Teach students about the Bay and their local watersheds and about how students can make a difference in watershed health; (2) Engage school communities in education and restoration activities that benefit watershed health; and (3) Provide meaningful watershed education experiences for students and teachers. (Please note that the Trust requires that all non-Title 1 Schools provide funding for at least half of their field trip or experience costs.) Applications must be submitted electronically to: http://www.cbtrust.org/grants/mini. The next deadline for Mini Grant Environmental Education proposals will be 5:00 pm on January 10, 2014. More information is available at Chesapeake Bay Trust.
