Science Education Grant

Each year, the Board of Directors of Sandy Creek Nature (SCNC, Inc.) awards grants to three Clarke County School District teachers who are passionate about teaching science and dedicated to challenging and supporting all students. This award seeks to encourage, recognize and promote science education in our community.


Funds may be used for classroom materials, i.e. books, consumables,  and resources for the teacher, or enrichment activities such as field trips. Awardees must provide a short narrative by the end of the school year describing how the funds were used. 


Award recipients are recognized at the Annual Meeting of Sandy Creek Nature Center, Inc., in press releases, and at their school at the beginning of each school year.

The 2019 Science Education Grant will be administered through the Foundation for Excellence in the amounts of $250, $250 and $500. These grants are open to all CCSD teachers.
