The Foundation’s grants facilitate work in the classroom, school, district, and/or community. Projects that feature outreach to urban areas are particularly encouraged. Two broad categories: 1) promoting geographic knowledge through education, and 2) promoting stewardship of natural and cultural resources. Applications are accepted from any current teacher or administrator in an accredited K-12 school within the United States. Alliance Program grants are by invitation only, and the Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.
