Are you a teenager between the ages of 13 and 18 who is interested in learning about beekeeping? If so, apply for the PCBA Study Grant Program.

The purpose of the Study Grant Program is to encourage the next generation to take up beekeeping through mentoring, education, and providing equipment.

Applicants must live in the Pierce County Beekeeper’s service area, including all of Pierce County and those parts of adjoining counties. It is a wonderful program and we encourage teenagers to participate!

The application and requirements are available here to download:


Volunteer Opportunity for Adults:

The Study Grant Committee is in need of a few dedicated members. Members of the Study Grant committee review applications, interview potential grant recipients and their families, and oversee the progress of the recipients. Members of the committee do not have to be direct mentors, but will need to mare sure recipients are in contact with their mentors and getting the supervision they need. This is a great way to ensure beekeeping will continue and make a difference in a teen’s life.
