Funds available for educational projects related to our mission

The Council works to educate Exxon Valdez region youth about the environmentally safe operation of the Alyeska terminal and associated tankers. Working with area youth is vital to fight complacency that can arise if new generations of citizens are not continually reminded of the need for ongoing oil spill prevention.

To support this effort, the Council is inviting proposals for facilitating learning experiences with Exxon Valdez oil spill region youth.

  • Proposal Deadline: June 15, 2021
  • Final Award Announcement by: August 31, 2021

Please note: This RFP is intended to fund projects occurring during the 2021-2022 school year (all work completed before June 30, 2022).  A future RFP will be released for Summer 2022 projects (for projects that start after July 1, 2022).
