Grant Program

Each year, SWEP Greater Philadelphia awards a small grant (of under $2,000) to help fund organizations or programs that creatively address a locally-defined need to create, enhance, restore, or protect the natural environment or to provide environmental awareness through educational sessions, with particular emphasis on encouraging girls and/or women in the sciences, engineering, or environmental fields.  SWEP presents these grants to encourage girls and/or women in the sciences, engineering, or environmental fields. To be eligible for a grant, applicants and projects must be located within the Greater Philadelphia Area, which includes northern Delaware and Southern New Jersey.

This year, applications for our grants will close at midnight on May 15, 2019, with the awards taking place in November 2019 at our Annual Touchstone Awards Reception. Award recipients will be notified in July.
