Grants to Oregon formal and informal teachers affiliated with a sponsoring organization to integrate geography into the school curriculum. Funding is intended to help schools, districts, and communities promote the incorporation of geographic ideas into the curricula of K-12 classes. The goal of the grant is to encourage children, youth, and educators to have a sense of place in their local and global community, and to prepare them to be active stewards of Oregon’s communities and natural environments.

In 2021 Gray Family Foundation is offering grants to support educators in the development of instructional resources that use the power of geography to help students explore and understand the challenges facing our local communities. The Foundation will award grants to projects that align with the following priority objectives:

  • Improve students’ practice of geography skills, tools, and perspectives;
  • Support interdisciplinary instruction of Geography as a foundation for the instruction of other subjects;
  • Increase student participation in geography learning experiences, with a focus on those that reflect all voices and cultures impacted by Oregon’s geography.

Examples of instructional resources can include but are not limited to curricula, lesson plans, virtual field trips, readers, supporting technologies, and other resources that can help support the integration of geography lessons, methods, tools, and strategies into Oregon classrooms. The resulting instructional materials should directly benefit the learning of Oregon youth.
