Kansas Sierra Club Offering Grants For Teachers

KSAL StaffJanuary 13, 2016

The Kansas Sierra Club is making grants available to teachers in the Sunflower State.

According to the organization, the Kansas Chapter of the Sierra Club will offer a limited number of grants to K-12 teachers for the 2016-17 academic year to educate students about climate disruption. Grants may be used to attend conferences, prepare special lessons and experiments, and purchase materials for lessons and projects that address the climate crisis. Licensed K-12 teachers in accredited Kansas schools in any field of study may apply.

Now in its fourth year, the Sierra Club Environmental Grants for Kansas Primary and Secondary Educators program was uniquely created by the Kansas Chapter. This is the first program of its kind in the national Sierra Club. Over $12,000 in grants have been awarded to Kansas teachers since the program’s inception. These grants are intended to enhance teachers’ abilities to educate students on the nature of climate change and explore solutions to the immense challenges it poses.

Grants range from $250 to $1,000. The deadline for applications is April 1, 2016. Awards will be announced in early May. Teachers do not need to be Sierra Club members to apply for a grant.

The Sierra Club’s Kansas Chapter hopes to partner with teachers throughout the Sunflower State in educating students about the nature and causes of our changing climate, and so to contribute to their success in addressing this vital issue.
