Shade Structure Grant Program
The American Academy of Dermatology’s (AAD) Shade Structure Program awards grants for the purchase of permanent shade structures designed to provide shade and ultraviolet ray protection for outdoor areas. AAD also provides a permanent sign to be displayed near the shade structure that promotes the importance of sun safety.
The AAD will award thirty to thirty-five grants. Each shade structure grant is valued at a maximum of $8,000. To be considered for a grant, applicants must be a nonprofit organization or public school that primarily serves children age 18 and younger, demonstrates an ongoing commitment by having a sun safety/skin cancer awareness program in place for at least one year prior to application, and is sponsored by an AAD member dermatologist.
Deadline: April 22, 2011
