Cedar Tree Foundation Accepting Applications for Environmental Education Teacher Professional Development Grants

The Cedar Tree Foundation is a U.S.-focused family foundation created in the mid-1990s by the late pediatrician and entrepreneur Dr. David H. Smith. Smith believed in the power of individuals and organizations to make significant changes in the world, and Cedar Tree’s grantmaking continues to reflect that belief.

To advance its mission, the foundation is accepting applications for its Environmental Education Teacher Professional Development Program, which offers grants to organizations that provide summer professional development opportunities for current K-12 teachers in a public, private, or alternative school. Projects should allow teachers to have an engaging, hands-on EE experience with a cohort of other teachers; include networking and follow-up activities that support teachers in building their skills and bringing innovative and inspiring environmental stewardship education back to their classrooms in the fall; and provide compelling opportunities for school administrators that translate into impact in the classroom or school community will also be considered.

In 2017, grants will range between $20,000 and $100,000.

To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) organization that provides professional development opportunities for K-12 teachers in public, private, or alternative schools.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Cedar Tree Foundation.

Deadline: September 30, 2017
