ecoTech Grants

Originally developed in partnership with the Ray C. Anderson Foundation and with ongoing support from Voya Financial, ecoTech Grants are specifically offered to engage children in inquiry-based, STEM-related projects that leverage technology and/or use nature-based design to address environmental problems in local communities. ecoTech Grants were created to combat the notion that students needed to choose between “the screen” or “the green” and to encourage educators and students to explore the role technology can play in designing and implementing solutions to some of our most pressing environmental challenges. ecoTECH grant projects must: •Be based in the U.S. •Integrate the use of technology to address environmental problems (not iPads or other tablets) •Be project-based •Be youth-led •Result in real, demonstrable environmental outcomes ecoTECH grants are available as cash grants of up to $2,500 and support the purchase of materials and other project implementation expenses.
