American Academy of Dermatology Accepting Applications for Shade Structure Program

The American Academy of Dermatology is accepting applications for its AAD Shade Structure Grant Program.

Through the annual program, grants of up to $8,000 will be awarded to public schools and nonprofit organizations for the installation of permanent shade structures in outdoor locations not protected from the sun (e.g., playgrounds, pools, or recreation spaces). In addition to the grant, AAD also provides a permanent sign for display near the shade structure.

The program is open to nonprofit organizations that provide services, programs, and curricula to children and teenagers who are 18 and younger.

To be considered, applicants must be recommended by an AAD member dermatologist; demonstrate a commitment to sun safety within their organizations; and consider a shade structure that meets the stringent requirements of AAD.

See the AAD website for complete program guidelines and application procedures.

Deadline: November 25, 2017
