Great news! Your community can apply for our new E2: Energy to EducateSM Grant program (“E2 Grants”), which will provide funding for projects that enhance student understanding of science and technology needed to address energy issues. Funds will be provided by the Constellation Energy Foundation, and the awards will be up to $25,000 for projects involving students in grades six through 12 and up to $50,000 for projects at two- and four-year colleges.
The E2 Grant program will target hands-on demonstration projects that advance energy innovation and build on student knowledge and application of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
The projects must align with at least one of three focus areas:
• the basic science and engineering needed to address energy challenges;
• new energy technologies entering the marketplace; and
• the expanding role of information technology in how we efficiently manage and use energy.
To qualify for an E2 Grant, a project should be located in an area where Constellation Energy does business. To find out where we do business, click here.
Projects that will be selected will be team-oriented and reach a minimum of 100 students. Both two- and four-year colleges and universities are eligible. Projects involving students in grades six through 12 must include a minimum of three partners, including at least one that is governed by a board of directors and designated a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
Applications are due Monday, November 1. Interested organizations can find additional project criteria and a link to an online application by clicking here.
