Post Date: 23-Dec-2021 Deadline Date: 25-Jan-2022

Donor Name: Melinda Gray Ardia Environmental Foundation

The Melinda Gray Ardia Environmental Foundation’s Environmental Curricula Grants Program is now open to support educators in developing and implementing holistic environmental curricula that:

  • Integrate field activities and classroom teaching, and
  • Incorporate basic ecological principles and problem solving.

The Foundation have developed the grant program with the following goals:

  • To empower and encourage students to become involved in solving environmental and social problems
  • To promote thoughtful and appropriate analysis and understanding of the natural world
  • To train students as informed decision makers through the emphasis and application of basic ecological principles.
Funding Information

The Foundation give grants of up to $1500. If the MGAEF contribution will be part of a larger requirement, include the total budget of the project indicating what the funds will support. If your total budget exceeds $1500, as many projects do, it is important to:

  • State whether you have obtained or applied for additional funds
  • Give an honest appraisal of whether the project can succeed without these additional funds but with the $1500 grant.
Grant Requirements

To be awarded a grant, environmental curricula must:

  • Show a holistic approach
  • Strive to synthesize multiple levels of learning (facts, concepts, principles)
  • Include experiential integrated learning and problem solving
  • Be founded on basic scientific principles, including hypothesis testing and experimental design
  • Incorporate basic ecological principles and field environmental activities within a primary or secondary school setting
  • Present controversial issues objectively, stressing the development of individual student opinions
Eligibility Criteria
  • Any organization is eligible to apply, including schools, non-profits, governmental agencies and others.
  • The only criterion is that they are required to provide funds to an organization, not to an individual. If you are self-employed, you need to find a sponsoring organization.
  • They fund organizations across the globe, for example in Tanzania, Kenya, Guatemala, Chile and Bangladesh.
