PPLAs part of its continuing partnership with the communities it serves, PPL Corporation is once again offering grants to teachers to help their students learn more about energy, the environment and resource conservation.

Through the competitive “Empowering Educators” grants program, teachers can receive up to $2,000 for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) projects to encourage action in schools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey near PPL facilities.

Projects must focus on energy issues, such as renewable energy, efficiency and the greening of schools.

“The students who will benefit from these grants are the people who will decide how our state and nation use energy in the future,” said Meg Welker, PPL’s manager of Education and Public Outreach. “Continued support of education helps ensure that they will make informed choices.”

Applications must be postmarked or received on or before 4 p.m. on Nov. 8. Grant awards will be announced Dec. 9. For more information, and for grant application forms, visit theEmpowering Educators page.
