Aquarium Scholars Partnership: Teacher Mini Grants Program Application Deadline
December 17, 2017
Teachers in North Carolina’s Title I schools have an opportunity to engage their students in ocean science programming, thanks to a new program offering privately-funded mini-grants.
The Aquarium Scholars program will provide underserved students in Title I schools across the state access to ocean science and science, technology, engineering and math aquarium education opportunities. Teachers from Title I schools can apply for mini-grants to fund a variety of the Aquarium Scholars programs. Teachers may select outreach programs in the classroom featuring live animals, distance learning programs delivering real-time experiences or class trips to the Carolina coast for visits and programs at one of the aquariums or Jennette’s Pier. Each opportunity offers a chance to meet fascinating aquatic animals, learn about important conservation topics and get involved with other unique educational opportunities.
Teachers may submit applications now through Dec. 17, 2017 for programs offered in the current school year. For the following school year, applications may be submitted from July 1 through Sept. 15, 2018 for 2018-2019 funding.
These grants are only available for Title 1 teachers.
