H2O for Life offers minigrants of $250 to $500 to assist teachers and students on their journey to participate in a service-learning program focused on the global water crisis. Through their project, young people raise local awareness about the need to conserve and protect local water resources, while providing funds for implementation of water, sanitation, and hygiene education for a partner school. As they engage in service learning, students develop skills of advocacy, leadership, critical thinking, and empathy, as well as entrepreneurial skills. These small grants require participating schools to create a budget and business plan that they will implement during the school year. Teachers should work with students to set a fundraising goal thatis equal to the amount of the grant or more. Interested applicants will find additional details about this minigrant on GetEdFunding, a website sponsored by CDW•G with access to a free database of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
Deadline: Rolling through December 31, 2019, for applications
