FirstEnergy proudly supports classroom projects and teacher professional-development initiatives focusing on mathematics, science and technology.

One of the ways we support these activities is by offering mathematics, science and technology education grants of up to $500 to educators at schools and youth groups in communities served by our electric operating companies and other areas where we have facilities. 

More than 1,000 educators and leaders of youth groups have received grants since the program began during the 1986-87 school year.

The application process for the 2011-2012 school year is now open. Projects receiving this year's grants must be completed during the 2011-2012 academic year.
