Quadratec is taking their love for all things environmental and asking educators why they feel they would make a great fit for the Quadratec Energize the Environment grant program. Twice a year, Quadratec offers a grant of $3,500 to an individual or group pursuing a program or initiative designed to benefit the environment. Examples include trail building or restoration projects, park beautification events, litter prevention initiatives, Earth study missions, community environmental educational projects, and youth educational engagement events. Interested individuals or groups should submit a 1,000- to 1,600-word essay that paints a picture of who they are, what drives and inspires them, what they are looking to accomplish, and how they plan to apply the grant to their project. Any individual, group, or organization in the United States that has a love for all things environmental, and has an idea or event designed to help improve our environment, is eligible to apply.
Deadlines: All essays must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on June 30, 2021, to be considered for the fall 2021 grant; and 11:59 p.m. (ET) on October 30, 2021, for the spring 2022 grant. Winners will be notified within 20 days following the end of each grant’s submission window.
