Description: The Captain Planet Foundation (CPF) is offering grants to support inquiry-based projects in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields that leverage technology or use nature-based designs to address environmental problems in local communities. Ideal projects are youth-led, project-based, and integrate technology to address an environmental problem that results in real, demonstrable environmental outcomes. The foundation does not provide funding for applications that simply add iPads, tablets, or other smart devices to a project. Preference is given to requests that have secured matching or in-kind funding.
Eligible applicants are US-based nonprofit schools and organizations with operating budgets of less than $3 million. Applications must be submitted online.
