Grant Spotlight: $25,000 E² Energy to Educate Program
From Green Street Academy's winning project on photovoltaic energy in cars. GSA is a middle school in Maryland.
Constellation Energy provides multiple grants of $25,000 each year for science and technology-related education programs in grades 6–12 (and $50,000 for higher education grants). Last year, 17 projects received funding totaling $400,000.
The program, E² Energy to Educate, seeks proposals that offer "opportunities to experience problem-solving today's and tomorrow's energy challenges."
Proposals should be for hands-on projects impacting 100 or more students and should be along the lines of one of the program's themes, which include:
- Transportation of the future;
- Generating energy at home;
- Harnessing waste.
The 2017 deadline for applications is Oct. 1. Complete details, including a few examples of past winners, can be found at constellation.com/community/e2-energy-to-educate.html.
