Financial Aid

Deadline: August 11, 2023

Diversity and Equity Scholarship: CAEE has established the Diversity and Equity Scholarship to honor our commitment to building a more inclusive, diverse, equitable, and accessible environmental education field in Colorado. The Diversity and Equity Scholarship is aimed towards groups who have been historically excluded from the EE field: BIPOC, LGBTQ+ community, disabled community, and other traditionally marginalized groups. If you, someone you know from your organization identifies as one of these marginalized groups and/or your organization serves these audiences please apply! 

Apply for the Diversity and Equity Scholarship

Financial Assistance Volunteer Details: Financial assistance funds are available for virtual day attendance and full conference attendance. Money is awarded upon completion of approximately 3-5 hours of volunteer time depending on your awarded amount. There are volunteer activities that take place prior, during or after the conference and types of task are listed in the online form. You will be notified of your specific task and volunteer time prior to the conference. 

Decisions will be based on need and quality of the application. We always receive more applications than funds available and strongly consider the quality and effort put into responses.
