AZGFD Heritage K-12 Small Grant Program
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 $2000) to Arizona teachers to help implement quality wildlife education in their classrooms.
Any education professional who is currently operating within the state of Arizona is eligible to apply. This includes government and non-profit employees who are responsible for educating Arizona’s students. However, preference will be given to current K-12 district and charter school teachers.
We are currently seeking grant proposals where 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 currently partnering with the Department on a project directly benefiting Arizona students and needs some money to assist with this 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.
Grant applications are now being accepted and will be due by September 1. Any applications received after that deadline may be eligible for an additional scoring round in January, if money is available.
Check out the links below for full grant rules including detailed eligibility requirements and the rubric.
Once you are ready, complete the grant application
We will be hosting virtual grant information sessions on July 30 and August 10. These sessions will be held on Zoom and will provide an overview of the grants. We will answer any questions you may have before applying. While these are not required, it is highly suggested that potential applicants attend one in order to have a more competitive application. To register for either of these free sessions, visit our education event calendar.
If you have any questions about this grant, please reach out to the Department’s wildlife education coordinator, email@example.com.
