Marjot Foundation Grants for Students Grades 9-11

The Marjot Foundation seeks applications from high school students (grades 9-11) conducting independent field and/or laboratory research projects on environmental issues.  Students must write an independent proposal detailing their research goals to be carried out over a one-year period.  Applications are due on April 1, 2017.  Students must have a mentor who will provide a letter stating he/she will help the students with their research. Students will be required to participate in a science fair at the conclusion of their research. Projects may focus on any area of environmental research, and must be designed by the student applicant. Current Marjot Foundation grants are $5000, with $1000 going to the student(s), $1000 to the mentor, $500 to the School Department, and $2500 to cover the cost of supplies.  For further information on the application process, visit the Marjot Foundation website at
