Part of the foundation’s ongoing environmental and sustainability initiatives, Students to Stewards this year will provide grants of up to $2,500 to schools with a financial need. The grants support conservation education, including classroom lessons, in-the-field learning and teacher training.
Since its creation in 2014, Students to Stewards has awarded more than 50 grants totaling more than $100,000. The grants have provided resources for a variety of conservation education projects, from the construction of outdoor classrooms to lesson plan development. Students to Stewards also helps younger generations gain a greater understanding about the many rewarding career opportunities connected to science and the environment.
For a school to be eligible for a Students to Stewards grant, at least 50% of its full-time student population must receive free or reduced-price lunches. The deadline to apply for a grant is Feb. 10. Find out more about Students to Stewards and the grant criteria by clicking here.
