Empowering K-8 Youth Through Place-Based Education Projects and Programs

Empowering K-8 Youth Through Place-Based Education Projects and Programs

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Gulf Research Program (GRP) aims to increase the scientific and environmental literacy and problem-solving skills of children and youth in the Gulf of Mexico region. This funding opportunity will support the next generation of informed citizens, scientists, engineers, and decision-makers in understanding the socio-environmental challenges of their local communities and providing opportunities to increase their capacity to address them.

Specifically, the GRP is seeking proposals that engage children and youth in place-based educational activities that will foster the development of the scientific and environmental skills, competencies, and capabilities that are critical to solving complex issues in the Gulf now and into the future. The GRP will accept proposals from nonprofit, state, and local entities, excluding federal agencies, which support educational, service, and/or coordination activities for children and youth in the K-8 grade range. Post-secondary institutions are eligible to apply as Project Team Members working under a Program Director who has programmatic experience serving children and youth (e.g. through a school district or community-based organization).

A total of $1M is available for this funding opportunity, with the number of proposals being funded dependent on the quality and quantity of applications. Applicants must request at least $75,000 for projects, commensurate with the scope of work, that are up to 30 months in duration.
