Michigan Nature Association Field Trip Grant
Teachers can apply from all seven metro Detroit counties (and across the state!). They accept applications from teachers/schools only, so please pass this along to any of your teacher contacts!
The Michigan Nature Association is offering field trip grants for teachers the fall and spring of the 2019-2020 school year. The grants are intended to assist teachers in developing fun, educational, and hands-on field trips to help students learn about the natural environment. Eligible grant expenses include transportation, program and/or entry fees, and educational supplies. MNA is especially interested in applications from schools with limited access to and ability to visit natural areas. For application and other information, including deadlines, an FAQ, and grant decision-making rubric, please visit www.michigannature.org and click on the Education tab.
