About this funder:



The Education Grants and Scholarship Committee is created in the Department of the Administrative Vice President with the responsibility of administering or providing support for educational programs.

Education grant programs may be awarded from the Cave Education Restricted Fund.

The NSS Cave Education Restricted Fund is established to promote cave and karst education programs for primary and secondary students. Donors established the fund.

Grants are awarded throughout the fiscal year; however, grant applications are due by the end of March and the end of September for consideration in each bi-annual round. Please note that sometimes only partial awards can be made due to the number of requests and the limits of funding.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

  • Grants are awarded to private individuals as well as institutions.
