Got a great idea? The CBT has Youth Grants to give out

The deadline for the next intake of the Columbia Basin Youth Grants is February 21, 2011, says a statement from the Columbia Basin Trust.

Unlike previous years, in which CBT accepted applications year-round, this year the program has two application deadlines, in spring and fall.

People with project ideas are encouraged to start their applications by contacting CBT’s Youth Liaison well before the deadline. The Liaison provides support to applicants throughout the process, including discussing project ideas, providing application assistance and giving feedback on rough copies of applications.
