Michigan State University will again host a Great Lakes Conference this year as part of ANR Week. This year’s Great Lakes Conference will be held on the MSU campus at the Kellogg Center on Tuesday, March 4.

Stipends for the first 60 K-12 or informal educators who register are available thanks to a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In addition to the conference, an educator luncheon is also being provided where information, ideas and materials useful in advancing Great Lakes Literacy in Michigan will be shared.

To become eligible to receive a $150 stipend in support of your participation, you must complete two steps:

  1. Register for the conference (it’s free, but registration is required). Find more details and register online at the conference website.
  2. Complete and submit the Stipend Application Form (PDF) by Feb. 26.

Stipend applications must be sent via email to stew@msu.edu or fax to (586) 469-6948. Forms must be complete in order to be considered. You will be notified about your stipend status by February 28.
