In addition to the general grants provided through the Foundation, there are two specialty grants that are awarded each year. The Kundell Environmental Management Internship Grant, created by the Foundation in honor of the late Dr. Jim Kundell, has been awarded for four internships in Bartow, Cobb, and Cherokee counties. These internships will include soil and erosion projects, projects for Keep Cobb Beautiful and Keep Cherokee Beautiful, and stream monitoring. The Garner Health and Human Service Internship, created by the Foundation in honor of late Fulton County Commissioner Joan Garner, has been awarded to Fayette County to provide testing of lead and copper in water sources near elementary schools.
