Eligible applicants include any federally-recognized Indian Tribe or “State Educational Agencies” for the following U.S. Territories – Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Applicants may propose to directly operate service-learning programs, in partnership with local K-12 school(s), that meet the statutory definition of service-learning, or propose to award subgrants to local educational agencies or local K-12 school(s) which in turn implement service-learning programs that meet the statutory definition of service-learning.
