Grants ranging from $100 to $1,000 to Vermont schools and school districts for environmental projects that address climate change.

Types of projects that might be considered include:

- Bringing additional content expertise into schools.
- Purchasing materials to be used to enhance critical thinking, problem solving, and action in school curriculum such as energy monitoring hardware and software, digital probes, monitoring software for renewable energy installations etc.
- Educational experiences to improve students’ knowledge, critical thinking, and decision making, such as bus trips and admission to museums or conferences.
- Support for action and stewardship priorities as identified by teachers and students including conservation (behavioral changes such as light switch labeling) or efficiency items (such as lighting sensors, etc. )
