Deadline Extended for K-12 Science Mini Grant Program
The application period for DTE Energy's 2009 Energy & Our World Mini Grants for Educators program has been extended to Nov. 28. The program offers small grants, typically up to $250, to help individual K-12 educators fund science programs that they otherwise couldn't afford for their classes.
According to DTE Energy, "This year the DTE Energy Foundation is especially interested in funding projects that teach students about power generation, energy distribution, renewable energy technologies, environmental issues and energy conservation." The company said awards typically range from $50 to $250, though funding does sometimes go higher. Last year the program awarded grants to 142 teachers.
The grant program is open now to all K-12 educators within DTE Energy's service territory. All applications have to be postmarked by Nov. 28, and grants will be awarded within the first three months of 2009. Further information, including a grant application, can be found here.
