Nunavut government puts out call for youth science projects
I-SPY program offers up to $5,000 per organization
Not-for-profit organizations working with youth on science and technology programs still have a few days to brainstorm possible projects for youth.
The Nunavut government’s Department of Economic Development and Transportation’s Independent Science Programs for Youth fund will accept applications for projects until March 31.
The program, known as the I-SPY fund, supports projects that:
• Engage Nunavut students in hands-on science learning opportunities
• Develop and carry out science-based extracurricular programming for Nunavut youth
• Generate an interest in science among students
• Promote careers in science and technology
• Highlight Nunavut-relevant examples of science research and projects
The maximum annual grant is $5,000 per organization, with possible exceptions being made for projects that involve students from more than one community.
