2018 IEU Environment Grants now open (deadline extended)

IEU members are invited to apply on behalf of their schools, colleges or early childhood centres for one of five grants of $3000 each, sponsored by Teachers Mutual Bank, to help with your environmental projects.

Teachers Mutual Bank (TMB) has a proud history of funding education projects that bring sustainability projects to life and is the sole sponsor of this initiative.

There is no definitive list of possible activities, but typical projects include habitat conservation, biodiversity and tree planting, outdoor learning areas, vegetable and kitchen gardens, organic produce, water and energy savings, waste, recycling and composting projects and Aboriginal cultural projects.
