The purpose of this program is to provide environmental education training and long-term support to education professionals across the U.S. to enable them to effectively teach about environmental issues. Long-term support (e.g., the use of national guidelines that discuss what constitutes quality environmental education materials and what a student needs to know about the environment in grades K-12 to become environmentally literate) is as important as the training itself. The intermediate outcome is better trained educators and the long-term outcome is a more environmentally literate public. Only one cooperative agreement will be awarded. The total estimated funding for the first year of the program (FY 2017) is $2,175,500.
UIC may submit/be a part of only one proposal, whether as the sole applicant or as the lead institution in a consortium.
