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.
The next application window will open in July 2021 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.
Check out this short video from our information session that describes the grants in more detail.
The application process will be available mid July.
