- The first is our Environmental Education grants. For this one, we are really hoping to fund professional development opportunities, particularly ones that offered continued and sustained STEM training. It is highly advised that you work with us on ideas and plans prior to applying.
- The second is for field trips. We do have specifications on where we want the field trips to occur and what they should look like to some degree, but it is a good opportunity to cover the travel-related expenses for outdoor experiences. And note, the grant do say that they must be used during 2014. However, they can be used during the entire 2014-15 school year, as well.
