National Environmental Education Foundation: Greening STEM Integration Grant for EducatorsDeadline: April 2, 2016
The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), with major funding support from the Mitsubishi Corporation Foundation for the Americas (MCFA), is offering funding for teachers, after-school programs, and nature organizations for projects that support the integration of Greening STEM into current or new programming or curriculum. NEEF believes that the natural world offers a compelling and universal context for investigations and applications of many STEM lessons. The Foundation calls this approach Greening STEM, and it encourages bringing environmental topics and discussions into STEM lessons already established within a school’s curriculum. By learning about STEM concepts in reference to real-life environmental examples or issues, the subject matter is more tangible and extends beyond the textbook or classroom, influencing the way students think about the world and the way they view their connection to it.
Amount: Grants will range from $500-$1,000 each.
Eligibility: Teachers/schools, after school programs, and environmental organizations.
