Geography Education Grant

The Geography Education Grant Program is a partnership of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the National Geographic Society. The National Geographic Society makes awards of approximately $40,000 in support of projects designed to improve the quality of geography education in the Texas K-12 environment, including collaborative efforts between public and independent institutions of higher education in Texas and a K-12 partner. The latter may include, but is not limited to, school district(s), individual schools/teachers, regional education service center(s), and public or private entities. For more information, contact Carley Lovorn at the National Geographic Society using the contact information listed at the bottom of this page.
