Grants to Alaska Schools

 Since its beginnings during the 2014-2015 school year, the Alaska Sea Grant school grant program has provided more than $100,000 to 10 Alaska school districts to increase local marine and aquatic education in 22 communities. The three-year, $10,000 grants have supported science curriculum revisions, development of NGSS-aligned lesson plans and units, field trip transportation, and the purchase of equipment and supplies. 

If you are an Alaska teacher or administrator, contact us to get on the email list for the next announcement for a Request for Proposals.
