The National Weather Association is accepting applications for projects to improve K-12 education in meteorology and related sciences.
Four Sol Hirsch Education Fund grants of $750 will be awarded to help teachers purchase scientific materials for their classroom, school, or community; begin new school or community science outreach and education programs; enhance or expand existing meteorology/science education programs; and/or attend accredited courses, workshops, or conferences related to meteorology that will significantly enhance their teaching activities. Priority will be given to projects that show the most creativity and have the potential for greatest impact.
Teachers, program directors, school district supervisors, and other individuals or groups working to improve the education of K-12 students in meteorology are eligible to apply.
