ABOUT THE MARINE SCIENCE GRANT EDUCATION GRANTS
Complementing the reef restoration components of the UAE-UWCK reef revitalization partnership, education is critical to the sustainability of this bold project investing in the future of the Florida Keys. We are proud to announce the UWCK Marine Science Education Grant – Creating the Next Generation of Reef Stewards. Our goal is that educating children to engage in stewardship and conservation from a young age will change habits and behaviors resulting in long-term success for the community and the inter-dependent ocean environment. This program supports 5 school years, beginning with 2021-22, and the annual application period is August 1- September 21.
UWCK’s five-year commitment will provide $180,000 to schools and educational facilities throughout the Keys. Last year, over $23,000 has been awarded as part of the grant program, with funds providing educational experiences and an expansion of resources to seven schools as well as three marine science non-profit organizations.
