Project Learning Tree’s 2011 GreenWorks! grant application is now online! Grants of up to $1,000 are available and grant applications are due September 30, 2011.
GreenWorks! Grant Details
Through a competitive application process, PLT will award grants by the end of December 2011 to PLT-trained educators for service-learning projects that involve youth in all elements of planning, implementing, and maintaining an environmental action project. Applicants should demonstrate how their GreenWorks! project will connect to the academic curriculum and how it will allow students to apply classroom knowledge and skills. Projects should also involve the local community and provide students opportunities to demonstrate and celebrate their accomplishments.
A Second Grant Opportunity
In 2011, Project Learning Tree’s GreenWorks! program is offering a second grant opportunity. PLT has designated funds available to registered schools in the PLT GreenSchools! program (registration is free). This funding is specifically tied to the implementation of GreenSchools! action projects. Please note that there are two different grant proposals, one for Project Learning Tree’s traditional GreenWorks! grant funding and one for GreenSchools! action projects. PLT encourages you to apply for at least one!
Visit www.greenworks.org for more information…and don’t forget, September 30 is the deadline to apply!
Project Learning Tree looks forward to receiving your application!
