The Gulf Research Program (GRP) is developing new programming around health and community resilience that prioritizes the needs and challenges of at-risk communities that disproportionately live in unsafe and unhealthy environments. This funding opportunity seeks to build the future leaders needed to confront the complex challenges to human health and the environment in the 21st century.

The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support programs that cultivate the next generation of STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine) leaders in the GRP’s geographic regions in the field of environmental justice (EJ). The GRP is accepting proposals from nonprofits and community-based organizations (CBOs) with 501(c)(3) status that have EJ programs. Preference will be given to nonprofits and CBOs that have existing EJ projects or programs for children and youth (5 to 24 years old).

The GRP expects to award up to six proposals under this funding opportunity. Applicants may request up to $250,000 per year for up to five years.

Application Deadline: Full proposals due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on August 23, 2021.
