OWEA Public Education and Outreach Funding Assistance Request (EOFAR) Program
  • The OWEA Public Education and Outreach Funding Assistance Request (EOFAR) Program was established by the Public Education Committee in 2015 to ensure continued success of OWEA’s commitment to public education and outreach to the citizens of Ohio of all ages; particularly K-12.
     
  • The average funding level is $500 per application/applicant, but varies depending on the number of applicants and funding level requested.  Additional monies will be considered based on the amount available and the appropriateness / level of complexity of the project or outreach activity.
     
  • Funds are available on a first come, first serve basis and must be used within the academic year requested (if school), or within three months of non-school. Projects will be evaluated using the criteria noted in the full program description below. Recipients will be notified of award within three weeks of application receipt.
