The Alberta Emerald Foundation's Emerald Educational Engagement Grant program, or EEEG for short, welcomes young people (25 years and under) to pitch a dream environmental project for the chance to receive a $750 grant.
Step 1: Complete the Expression of Interest form. This must be approved by the Alberta Emerald Foundation (AEF) before moving to Step 2.
Step 2: Binge watch the Emerald Documentary Series and participate in conversations with the support of our study guides.
Step 3: Pitch an environmental project to the AEF inspired by something you saw in the Emerald Documentary Series. If your pitch is accepted, you will be provided with $750 to make it happen.
Step 4: Once your project is complete, submit a follow-up report to tell us how it went.
- You must be notified by the AEF that your expression of interest has been approved before moving onto step 2.
- Funds are distributed in two amounts: $500 upfront when your environmental project pitch is approved. The remaining $250 will be distributed once we have reviewed your final report.
- The AEF strives to distribute a total of 30 grants this year through the EEEG program.
- Only group projects are eligible for funding. Individuals will not be approved for funding.
- Applicants are only eligible for one grant per granting period.
