Environmental education is a core value of MAEP. We extend our environmental education initiatives to K-12 schools, community colleges, universities, and community organizations by awarding Environmental Education Grants. The Environmental Education Grants are funded by proceeds from the MAEP’s Annual Golf Outing. Each year, we award multiple grants. On average we fund between $10,000 to $15,000 per year in grants. These grants are awarded in small increments to a variety of programs that provide environmental education and hands-on scientific field-application through school curricula or through community groups or environmental organizations. Grant recipients have used these funds to support practical applications to solve environmental problems, or to collect data to analyze and better understand environmental issues.
Awardees of the 2016 MAEP Environmental Grants will be announced at the Annual Meeting on December 7, 2016.
All interested individuals are invited to apply. Applications will be accepted until September 30th.
MAEP’s goal is to fully fund environmental education projects; therefore, detailed budgets outlining expenses and match-grants (if applicable) make for a strong application.
