AZGFD can Provide Financial Resources for Educators
The Arizona Game and Fish Department is pleased to announce a grant designed specifically for Arizona educators. The goal of this program is to provide financial resources (up to $3,000) to Arizona teachers to help implement quality wildlife education in their classrooms.
AZGFD accepted applications in July of 2022 and were due by Sept 1. Any applications received after that deadline may be eligible for an additional scoring round in January, if money is available.
grant proposals are considered when the applicant:
- has attended a previous educator workshop hosted by the Department (or has plans to attend a future workshop) and wants some money to help implement education related to that workshop
- is developing an innovative wildlife-focused lesson or resource for the classroom and
needs money to complete the project
- has developed a unique, inquiry-based field trip to take place on one of the many public lands in Arizona and needs money to off-set some of those costs

Department staff will be hosting informational webinars about the grants in August and December. To find more details and register, visit our professional development calendar
