Montana’s Alternative Energy Resources Organization is offering the Jane Kile Memorial Scholarship for Montana residents. Intentionally broad to accommodate a spectrum of creative project ideas, the scholarship seeks to fund projects that “let the land show people what it needs to support life for all life.” In 2020, the scholarship will grant $600 to one recipient, as well as a one-year AERO membership. Past projects funded include: a solar energizer for electric fencing and a solar-powered mobile e-waste unit. Other ideas include: increasing soil fertility; funding a speaker in your local community; promoting zero waste on your farm, ranch or farmers market; season extenders for your garden plot, farm or ranch; promoting food growing in your community; establishing a gleaning project; renewable energy projects for your community, farm, or ranch.
The application deadline is November 30, 2020.
