Deadline for Applications Is November 30
The Student Activist Grant of the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island is available to Nassau
Previous Student Activist Grants have supported safe recycling of medicine containers for clinics in Malawi, building a greenhouse on a high school campus, spring baskets for children in homeless shelters, educating high school students about underage drinking with stickers on pizza boxes, creating an outdoor play area at a homeless shelter, running a bowl-a-thon for Habitat for Humanity, and creating and selling ornaments to raise money for a breast cancer program. Says 2015 grant recipient Matthew Berman, of Roslyn High School, who collected 3,500 pill bottles that were sent to Africa, “I am so grateful for this opportunity that the grant presented me with to turn this plan on paper into a successful and functioning reality.”
The student must be a Nassau County resident, aged 12 to 18, and enrolled in middle school or high school. The application deadline is November 30, with the project to be completed before April 30, 2018.
