Celebrating environmental education, the purpose of the “Get Em Outside Mini-Grant” program is to support educators in their efforts to take students outside for learning opportunities. The mini-grant applicants should highlight their use of funds and how those funds will enhance students’ connection with a sense of place and hands-on learning experiences. With this funding, MEEA would like to be able to provide valuable resources otherwise not available to both formal classroom and nonformal educators across Montana, fostering excellence in environmental education. This mini-grant program began in memory of Emerson Juliette Graham and aims to inspire youth to learn about and care for the natural world. If not all funds are used, they will roll over to the following grant cycle. Typically the call for proposals are sent out at the end of the year and awards are made during the first few months of the year. Grants of up to $500 are available annually.
Who is eligible for the grants?
Montana schools, homeschools, tribal entities, nonprofit organizations and tax exempt government agencies are eligible to apply. Educators at these organizations are encouraged to apply, either individually or with a team. MEEA membership is not required to apply, but we request that those selected for a grant become members.
The 2019-2020 Grant Cycle is OPEN
