PPL Seeks Applications For Energy, Environmental Education Grants

PPL Corporation is once again offering grants to teachers to help their students learn more about energy, the environment and resource conservation. The deadline for applications is November 11.
Through the competitive “Empowering Educators” grants, teachers can receive up to $2,000 for educational projects that focus on energy issues like renewable energy demonstrations, energy conservation and the greening of schools.
The program focuses on science, technology, engineering and math projects to encourage action in schools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey near company facilities.
“The students who will benefit from these grants are the homeowners and the business leaders of tomorrow. Having a good energy knowledge foundation will allow these students to help their communities thrive,” said Meg Welker, PPL’s manager of Education and Public Outreach.
If you have a project in mind or need more information about PPL’s grants program, please contact Alana Roberts, community affairs specialist, by sending email to: or call 570-542-2886.
Grant awards will be announced December 5. For more information, and for grant application forms, visit the PPL Empowering Educators webpage.
