Thursday's Grant Update - Going Green October 15 2009

I recently wrote an article about federal grants now available due to stimulus funds, along with some tips on how to research and write grants.

The NEA Foundation recently publicized a new grant for Green Initiatives in your classroom. From the website:

Public school educators are eligible to apply for individual grants worth up to $5,000 for the development and implementation of ideas, techniques, and approaches for teaching “green” concepts.

The first grant application deadline is October 15, 2009, and the first grants are slated to be awarded in January 2010.  The Foundation will award two more rounds of these green grants in 2010, with deadlines for applications falling on Feb. 1 and June 1.

We missed the October 15th deadline, so start now for the February 1st deadline! And good luck!
