- Guidelines for Excellence in EE Small Grant Opportunity - Deadline: Nov 12th
North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE)
The National Project for Excellence in Environmental Education, initiated by NAAEE in 1993, has created a series of publications that provide guidance for the development of high-quality environmental education. Each of these publications was developed by a diverse team of professionals, and each has gone through a substantive review by thousands of professionals prior to its publication (eelinked.net/n/guidelines).
Five small grants will be awarded (pending final funding approval from EPA) in cooperation with EECapacity and the University of Oregon. The grants are meant to help defray the costs of conducting guidelines training with a focus on how they can be used in an urban context. Trainings can focus on any of the Guidelines publications (i.e., the entire set, a specific publication, or some combination of publications). Workshops can be designed as general professional development, as a means of building partnerships or for a specific audience (e.g., Head Start, Minority Academic Institution faculty members).
Eligibility? NAAEE Affiliate, EECapacity State Consortia member, or other Not-for-Profit
How Much? Up to $1000
The cash award (up to $1000) is meant to defray costs of organizing and holding the workshop (e.g., staff time, advertising, facility rental, supplies, coffee breaks, lunch).
In addition to the cash award, the project will provide:
- free copies of the Guidelines publication(s) for all participants
- pay the travel costs for a Guidelines for Excellence trainer to facilitate the workshop (if needed).
Who will facilitate the training?
The project will help you recruit a member of the Guidelines Trainer's Bureau to facilitate the workshop (no cost to you). The National Project for Excellence in EE has established the Guidelines Trainer's Bureau as a way of offering expanded opportunities to learn about the Guidelines. Guidelines Trainer's Bureau members have received specialized training and are available to give presentations to a variety of audiences on the Guidelines and how these publications can be used to enhance the quality of environmental education practice. To see a listing of Guidelines Trainers' Bureau members by state visit: http://eelinked.naaee.net/n/guidelines/topics/Guidelines-Trainers-Bureau
If a Guidelines Trainers' Bureau member facilitates the workshop, the project will also cover reasonable travel costs for the workshop facilitator.
How Many Grants will be Awarded? Five small grants will be awarded
Deadlines? Application due on November 12, 2012
Hold the training by June 30, 2013 [could be extended, depending on circumstances]
