NOW Accepting NHEE'd to Get Outside Grant Applications to fund 2022 Outdoor Learning Experiences!
This grant is provided to NH schools or 501(c)3 non-profit organizations to provide students hands-on, experiential, outdoor learning opportunities. These educational experiences can be to a variety of locations (e.g., nature center, museum, state park, conservation area, school grounds) and must include an outdoor, experiential component.
These outdoor experiences do not have to be science focused; since environmental education is interdisciplinary by nature, we encourage experiences that engage the environment in creative ways through various subjects. Some weight is also given to applicants who plan in the "off season" (late fall, winter, and early spring), as this provides new and different outdoor experiences and supports environmental education centers around the state at a time when they have fewer visitors. The grant funds can be used to cover transportation costs and/or student entry or program fees when applicable. Anything that helps get students outdoors will be considered! We anticipate awarding grants in the range of $200-$500.
Applications are due November 20, 2021 to fund outdoor learning experiences taking place anytime during 2022. Awards will be announced by December 15, 2021.
