Greening STEM Integration Grants

NEEF Accepting Applications for Greening STEM Integration Grants

The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF), with major funding support from the Mitsubishi Corporation Foundation for the Americas, is offering funding for teachers, afterschool 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, an approach it calls Greening STEM. 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.

Through its Greening STEM Integration grants, NEEF will support educators who are leading the way in Greening STEM education and provide support for continued development and innovation of school programs and projects connecting STEM with environmental education. Grant funds can be used to cover costs associated with delivering programs (e.g., curriculum/materials development, field trips, program supplies, transportation, professional development, etc.), as long as the result of the funding creates lasting impact beyond the single event/use.

Grant amounts will range between $500 and $1,000. Grantees will be announced on April 22, 2016. NEEF will promote the winners and their programs using a variety of communications tools and strategies.

All applicants must register for National Environmental Education Week, and all applications must be submitted through NEEF’s online grants management system.

For a complete program description and application instructions, see the NEEF website.
