B-WET Mini Grants

NOAA B-WET partners with the Chesapeake Bay Trust to provide small grants (or "Mini Grants") to teachers and schools throughout the watershed. These Mini Grants support the implementation of meaningful watershed educational experiences (MWEEs) at the local level.

Awards ranging up to $5,000 are given to projects that advance student environmental literacy or provide related teacher professional development. The majority of Mini Grant applications are submitted by schools for field experiences and on-the-ground student service projects. However, organizations and agencies may also submit grants for small projects and public awareness initiatives.
