  • Implement innovative teaching methods that engage students in investigating and creating solutions for problems related to marine plastics

  • Engage new audiences in seeking solutions (e.g., product designers) to the plastic problem

Funding Information

  • Typical proposal requests should be less than $30,000. Applicants may request up to $100,000, of which up to 20 percent of the total can be used as a stipend for the applicant or team members.

Criteria

  • Preference will be given to projects with high potential impact and applicants who are residents or citizens of the country of fieldwork as well as to projects with strong local capacity development components.
  • Projects may be focused around conservation, education, research, storytelling, or technology, and all applications should explicitly review what has already been accomplished and state the plan for evaluating the impact of the work.
