9:00 AM to 4:00 PM


Michigan State University will host the 30th Great Lakes Conference this year as part of ANR Week. This year’s conference - "The Great Lakes: Tackling Challenges Today and Beyond" - will take place on Tuesday, March 3, 2020, at the Kellogg Center on the MSU campus in East Lansing, MI. This year's conference will address some of the major benefits that the Great Lakes provide as well as challenges they continually face. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Great Lakes from the experts!

In addition to the conference, we will again provide an educator luncheon where information, ideas, and materials useful in advancing Great Lakes Literacy in Michigan will be shared. 

Forty educators will be eligible to receive a $150 stipend in support of participation and a reserved spot at the educator luncheon. To submit an application, you must complete the following steps:

1. Complete the application form (link: http://bit.ly/GLC2020EducatorLunch). Information requested is required by the grantor, therefore incomplete applications cannot be considered. Applications are due no later than Feb. 14, 2020.

2. Applicants will be notified if they will receive a stipend by Feb. 19, 2020. 

3. After you have been chosen to receive a stipend, you must ALSO register for the conference itself. Conference registration is separate form. There is a $15 conference registration fee (no cost to students). Click here to register and see conference details

Stipend recipients agree and commit to attending all conference sessions, as well as the Educator Luncheon sponsored by Michigan Sea Grant Extension.
