The Kansas Chapter of the Sierra Club offers a limited number of grants to K-12 teachers engaged in teaching students about climate change. Grants may be used to attend conferences, prepare special lessons and experiments, and/or purchase materials for lessons and projects on climate change. Licensed K-12 teachers in accredited Kansas schools in any field of study may apply.
We encourage Kansas teachers to think creatively about the possibilities for these grants. Perhaps an art teacher needs materials for a special exhibit, or a science teacher needs lab equipment, or a history teacher wants to plan a field trip on environmental history.
These grants are intended to enhance teachers’ abilities to educate students on the nature of climate disruption and how human activity contributes to it. Through these lessons and projects, it is hoped that teachers and students will seek effective ways to slow and reverse the momentum of climate change.
Grant recipients will agree to present their projects at a regular Sierra Club General Meeting of one of the five Sierra Club Groups in Kansas during the 2016-17 academic year. Sierra Club General Meetings are open to all Sierra Club members and the general public.
Grants range from $250 to $1,000. The deadline for applications is April 1, 2016, by postmark or email time-stamp. Awards will be announced in May 2016.
It is our hope to partner with teachers throughout Kansas in educating students about the nature and causes of our changing climate and so to contribute to their success in addressing this vital issue.
