New scholarship program offers funds for community stewardship projects

A new funding opportunity is now available for Illinois and Indiana teachers interested in incorporating Great Lakes science, geography, and social studies into their classrooms. The Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant EMPOWER Scholarship provides $500 to help plan and implement a community stewardship project focused on local watershed issues. Applications for the two available scholarships will be accepted until April 30.  

Teachers in grades 4-12 can fill out the application form and submit it to Terri Hallesy via e-mail or fax. Selected teachers will be required to share information about classroom activities, student products, and successes at the end of the project.

The EMPOWER scholarship is the latest in IISG’s ongoing efforts to improve science, geography, and social studies education with professional development for teachers and innovative curriculum.
