Funds for Dental Health, Museum Practices Training and Environmental projects! 

Good day, Funds Fans!  We have a great selection of funds to share with you today, starting with the Canadian Foundation of Dental Hygiene Research and Education (CFDHRE).  This organization provides funding support for dental hygiene research and education in Canada in order to enhance the oral health and well-being of Canadians.  Deadline: October 8th, 2012.  Maximum Grant: $8,000.00.  Grant announcements will be made in early April 2013.  The Program Guidelines and Application Form are available here.  Please note, to be eligible for consideration, applicants must be affiliated with organizations that can issue official donation receipts for gifts that individuals and corporations make to them.   The Lead Principal Applicant must be a registered dental hygienist, except in the instance where an RDH graduate student is a Principal Applicant and they are supervised by a non RDH faculty member who is the Lead Principal Applicant.

Also, for any First Nation individuals interested in preserving their culture and heritage through learning the skills and knowledge required for museum work, there is a fantastic program available through the Canadian Museum of Civilization.  The goal of the Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices is to offer First Nations, Métis, and Inuit participants professional and technical training. The Program operates from September to April of each year, with a two week break for the holiday season.  Candidates should have Grade 12 education or equivalent. Those with less than Grade 12 education will be considered on the basis of demonstrable experience in cultural interpretation or related skills.  The Museum corporation provides a small stipend, travel, training and facilities for the Program. Participants are encouraged to seek additional sources of financial support to cover living expenses.  Deadline for applications is March 15th of each year.

On the environmental front , the EcoAction Community Funding Program  provides financial support to community-based, non-profit organizations for projects that have measurable, positive impacts on the environment.  Annual Deadline: November 1st.  Maximum Grant $100,000 per project.

The Program encourages action focused projects that will protect, rehabilitate or enhance the natural environment, and build the capacity of communities to sustain these activities into the future.  In keeping with Environment Canada’s national environmental priorities, the Program supports projects that address the following four themes:

Clean air: to reduce emissions that contribute to air pollutants

Clean water: to divert and reduce substances that negatively affect water quality or to focus on water conservation and efficiency

Climate change: to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change or to deal with the impacts of climate change

Nature: to reduce biodiversity loss, protect wildlife and plants, and protect and improve the habitat where they live

There you have it, folks.  Lots of money and lots of lead time!
