National Weather Association Invites Applications for K-12 Meteorological Education Projects


The National Weather Association is accepting applications for the Sol Hirsch Education Fund program, which supports efforts to improve K-12 education in meteorology and related sciences.

For the 2014-15 school year, the program will award grants of up to $750 to help teachers purchase scientific materials for their classroom, school, or community; begin new school or community science outreach and education programs; enhance or expand existing meteorology/science education programs; and/or attend accredited courses, workshops, or conferences related to meteorology that will significantly enhance their teaching activities. Priority will be given to projects that show the most creativity and have the greatest potential for impact.

Teachers, program directors, school district supervisors, and other individuals or groups proposing to improve the education of K-12 students in meteorology are eligible to apply.

See the National Weather Association Web site for a list of previous winners, complete program guidelines, and application instructions.
