This year, the Alcoa Foundation has two theme areas - Environment and Education. For the Environment, projects should bring about meaningful and systematic improvements in environmental sustainability through support for research, dialogue, standards and actions. For the education theme, the Foundation makes investments in educational and training endeavors where Alcoa, as a mining, manufacturing and innovation company, can offer our expertise and make a difference.
Concept papers must be submitted via this online form prior to May 23, 2012. The leadership at Alcoa Warrick Operations will conduct an internal review and then consult with its Community Advisory Board. Those organizations selected to progress to the next stage in the grant-making process will be notified in late June.
