YLACES Grant Proposal - *NEW DEADLINE*

Updated: Jul 22

In an effort to synchronize our grant process with the academic calendar, YLACES is shifting from an ongoing grant process to two grant cycles a year. The new grant deadlines are July 15th and January 15th. With these deadlines in place, teachers are able to prepare for implementing student citizen scientific research starting in time for the fall and spring semesters.

If you or an educator that you know are interested in working with youth to do research projects through environmental citizen science, you are invited to submit proposals for support to help acquire the scientific instruments or other necessary data collection tools or materials.

Please visit our grant page to find out more about YLACES grants.



Youth Learning as Citizen Environmental Scientists assists and rewards the implementation of inquiry-based, experiential science education where students do science and contribute to understanding of our environment through recognition and financial reward programs.

Grants range from support for taking simple measurements to teacher professional development and working for pervasive inclusion of student research projects in science teaching.
