Request a Grant Writer

Grant of $1,000 to a Georgia teacher to implement an educational life science project for 3rd to 5th-grade students. Funding is intended to support programs related to environmental issues facing local plants, animals, and habitats. Activities and projects may take place in-person (on school grounds) or virtually (online). Although this grant emphasizes life science, cross-curricular teaching is highly encouraged.

Preference will be given to teachers who demonstrate creativity in project design and use the outdoors as a context for learning. Projects that highlight rare wildlife, including plants, will receive extra consideration. Eligible applicants demonstrate exceptional energy and innovation in teaching life sciences.

Prospective teachers must use Georgia’s native animals, plants, and habitats as the context for covering Georgia Standards of Excellence.
