We’re excited to announce that the 2012 E2 Energy to Educate Grants program is now officially accepting submissions!
Last year alone, Constellation awarded over $500,000 across 14 student projects that reached nearly 26,000 students nationwide. The students were extremely creative and innovative in coming up with cutting edge projects that tackled important topics. We funded projects that worked on renewable energy and LEED design, electric and solar vehicle competitions, educational kiosks designed with real-time data and display of grid-tied solar array, and many other projects.
This year, we’re looking for the same type of curiosity and creative zeal to continually push the envelope within the energy-related science and technology community. Eligibility consists of the following: Students between grades six through 12 can apply for program grants up to $25,000. Students currently attending two-and-four-year colleges can apply for grants up to $50,000. The projects must be team-oriented and include 100 students or more. For projects involving students in grades six through 12, we require the involvement of three partners, including one that is governed by a board of directors and designated a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
