Wild Ones   Seeds for Education Grant Program Information  

Electronic Grant Application is Now Available

To be considered for the annual award, groups must apply for for 2010 awards by October 15, 2009. (Note this is a change from previous years.)

An electronic application form is now available. You can download the form to your computer and later, submit it by email. To be considered for an award, you must use this process.

Please read the eligibility requirements and related information and download the application form from this page.

Here are some hints for preparing a successful application:

  1. Double-check that your organization meets the eligibility requirements.
  2. Be sure that your project fits with program goals. The target projects involve young people (elementary through high-school age) in ecological projects based on native plants, where our awards will have a big impact on the project's success.
  3. Butterfly gardens, rainwater gardens, and similar projects of modest scope are the most frequent award-winners in past years. See the SFE Success stories page for examples.
  4. Remember that Wild Ones funds plants and seeds only. You must obtain funds for signs, fences, mulch, etc. from other sources.
  5. Prepare the required before and after sketches so they will display legibly when printed on 8.5 x 11 paper. You can create these in a computer graphics program, or scan a paper drawing. Please include a North arrow, and indicate any trees or structures that may shade portions of your site.
  6. Download the electronic application to your computer. If you use Windows, you will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software to complete the application form.
  7. When you are finished, click the SUBMIT button on the bottom of the form. On some computers, your e-mail program will open a new e-mail message with your answers attached.
  8. If your email program does not open automatically, you may see a box with some options. If you choose the option for for Internet email, the software will save your answers to your computer's hard drive. Then use your email program to send it as an attachment.

Thank you for helping children learn about native plants and the creatures that use their flowers, fruit and foliage!
