Environmental Education Funding Opportunity for Youth Projects
The Alaska Forum, with the support of EPA, is offering funding opportunities of up to $5,000 through the Community Environmental Education Stewardship through Youth Involvement Project. This program will support focused proposals from small communities (population less than 50,000 in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, or Washington) where youth seek involvement in environmental stewardship efforts. Proposals will be selected where youth are matched with a local environmental professional or teacher who will mentor youth as they address a specific concern in the community and work to solve it. Non-profit 501c3 organizations, middle schools and high schools or districts must serve as the fiscal agent of the grant award. Tribes can be instrumental in encouraging project submissions for their communities and serving as the environmental mentors required for these projects.
Download the Request for Proposal document for detailed information. Deadline for submittals is October 31, 2013.
