AZGFD Heritage K-12 Small Grant Program
New! 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 current application window is open until Feb. 15, 2020. Any applications received after this deadline may be eligible for a second round of scoring after May 1, if money is available.
Check out the links below for full grant rules including detailed eligibility requirements and the rubric.
Department staff will be hosting an informational webinar on these new grants. It will be held on Monday, January 27 at 7pm. The webinar is free and is open to anyone interested in applying. Participation is not required to apply but will provide a valuable opportunity to have any questions addressed. Register for the webinar
