Public Information and Education Mini-Grant Awards

Public Information and Education (PIE) Mini-Grant Awards are funded through the Nebraska Environmental Trust - Consider applying for a PIE grant!

The PIE Grants support the presentation and dissemination of information and perspectives that will stimulate enhanced environmental stewardship in any category eligible for Trust funding. The grant program seeks to expand dialogue on important conservation topics and to provide information on emerging or highly useful conservation methods.

In the spring of 2009 The Nebraska Academy of Sciences was awarded a grant from the Nebraska Environmental Trust (NET) to administer the Trust's Public Information and Education Mini-Grants (PIE Grants). In April 2012, the PIE grant from NET was renewed and another renewal was granted in April 2014. A renewal for the next three years was just awarded in April of 2017.

PIE Grant funding has an application process including two forms, and a written project narrative. PIE Grant reporting process includes three forms, and a written project summary narrative. Funding is limited to $3000. Applications will be accepted by the Academy each quarter and awards will be given each quarter.

Please note the application deadline dates. These are postmarked deadlines. You may submit your application via email to the Academy in PDF form but a signed hard copy should be mailed in as well. Click on the link below to download application and reporting forms.
