MEEA's Get Em Outside Mini-Grants Deadline Oct 30, 2012
MEEA is participating in a region-wide mini-grant opportunity, with $15,000 available for the 2012-2013 cycle. Please see info on our front page!
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:
Funds were established for the program with Emerson Juliette Graham’s Memorial Funds, which raised over $5,000. In 2012, Montana has partnered with other states in EPA Region 8 to provide greater resources for EE. For 2012, up to $15,000 in total is available for eligible grants.
2011-2012 Grant Cycle:
Get Em Outside Mini-Grants will be announced on September 13, 2011. Grant proposals will be due by December 31, 2011. Grant recipients will be notified by January 31, 2012. All funds and mini-grant programs must be implemented by December 31, 2012. Final reports will be due no later than December 31, 2012.
