American Electric Power is accepting applications from pre-K-12 teachers for mini-grants in support of classroom projects during the 2018-19 school year.
Through the Teacher Vision grant program, AEP will award grants of up to $500 to projects that have an academic focus and a goal to improve student achievement. Priority will be given to projects that promote science, mathematics, technology, electrical safety, the balanced study of energy and the environment, and energy efficiency.
Special consideration will be given to projects that incorporate matching funds, community resources, and interdisciplinary or team-teaching projects. Funds may not be used for stipends or meals.
There is a limit of one grant per teacher per year, and two grants per school per year.
To be eligible, applicants must be a pre-K-12 teacher who lives or teaches in the AEP service area or in a community with a major AEP facility.
