FirstEnergy Accepting Applications for STEM-Based Classroom Projects

FirstEnergy proudly supports classroom projects and teacher professional-development initiatives focused on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. To that end, the company is accepting applications for its STEM grants program.

Grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded in support of creative classroom projects related to one or more of the STEM disciplines. Since the launch of the program during the 1986-87 school year, more than one thousand educators and leaders of youth groups have received classroom grants.

Educators (pre-K through 12) and youth group leaders are encouraged to apply if their school or group is located in communities served by FirstEnergy’s electric operating companies (Ohio Edison, the Illuminating Company, Toledo Edison, Penn Power, Metropolitan Edison, Penelec, Jersey Central Power & Light, West Penn Power, Mon Power, and Potomac Edison), or in a community where the company has a facility.

See the FirstEnergy website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
