MEEA's Get Em Outside Mini-Grants Deadline December 31, 2014

Celebrating environmental education, the purpose of the “Get Em Outside Mini-Grant” program is to support educators in their efforts to take students outside for learning opportunities. The mini-grant recipients should highlight their use of funds and how those funds will enhance students’ connection with a sense of place and hands-on learning experiences. With this funding, MEEA would like to be able to provide valuable resources possibly not available otherwise to both formal classroom and nonformal educators across Montana, fostering excellence in environmental education.

About the Funding:
Funding for MEEA's first mini-grant cycle came from the Emerson Juliette Graham’s Memorial Fund, which raised over $5,000. Since then, MEEA has made direct financial support of EE programs in Montana a budget priority.
