Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grant of $1,000 to a Georgia teacher for an educational life science project. Funding is intended to support learning about environmental issues facing local plants, animals, and habitats. Eligible lessons may be conducted in-person or remotely. Although this grant emphasizes life science, cross-curricular teaching is highly encouraged. Preference will be given to teachers who demonstrate creativity in project design and use the outdoors as a context for learning. Projects that highlight rare wildlife, including plants, will receive extra consideration.

Through education, research and management, DNR's Wildlife Conservation Section safeguards Georgia's native diversity of wild animals, plants and habitats while also encouraging outdoor enjoyment. To help educators during these unprecedented times, DNR's Wildlife Conservation Section is pleased to offer a grant to an elementary school teacher who demonstrates exceptional energy and innovation in teaching life sciences.

Prospective teachers must use Georgia’s native animals, plants and habitats as the context for covering Georgia Standards of Excellence (see https://www.georgiastandards.org/Georgia-Standards/Pages/default.aspx).
