Grants for Students: Hawaiʻi Youth Sustainability Challenge!
Hawaiʻi Youth Sustainability Challenge (HYSC), a new mini-grant program aimed to support emerging environmental projects from Hawaiʻi’s public, private, and charter schools launched this week! Students and educators in grades K-12 have the opportunity to apply for funding to kick start their own grassroots initiatives and identify new, sustainable solutions for their schools and communities. HYSC was first announced by First Lady Dawn Amano-Ige at the 2016 IUCN World Conservation Congress and is dedicated to inspiring youth to be intentionally engaged with the environment through action, advocacy and education. Applications for the HYSC mini-grant are available through Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation’s Mini-Grant Program
