Proposals are now being accepted to the Verle Kaiser Conservation Endowment to fund small projects for promotion and demonstration of conservation practices targeting soil erosion, as described HERE. Application deadline is April 10, 2015.
Proposals are sought that fund the training of college and K-12 students and constituents, including curriculum development, field trips, teaching aids, audio/visual or other educational-related activities. Funds are open to Washington State University, University of Idaho, Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), Conservation Districts, and colleges in Washington and Idaho. However, proposals must have a strong linkage to WSU, the University of Idaho, Conservation Districts, and/or NRCS. Funds are limited to the Inland Empire – the area east of the Washington Cascades and north of the Salmon River in Idaho.
Successful 2014 applicants are asked to attach a progress report to any new or continuing proposal.
NEW for 2015: Proposal maximum has increased from prior years in an effort to better meet the needs of students and constituents. Please read the proposal format carefully, as requirements have changed. Proposals are not to exceed $5,000. Up to five grants will be awarded for this current funding cycle. Instructions for proposal format can be found on the Kaiser Conservation Endowment page.
