PPL Empowering Educators Grants

Submissions accepted through October 31, 2016
Attention teachers in K-12!


Apply for a $1,000 grant to bring science, technology, engineering, and math to life in your K-12 classroom through the PPL Empowering Educators grant program.

Five teams will be selected as award recipients. Teacher-led student teams will enter design ideas for STEM-related educational projects, such as energy conservation projects, renewable energy demonstrations, and math competitions.  Entries will be judged on: project proposal, school need, and potential overall impact.  The educational teams and a representative from PPL will each select five winning ideas.  In early December, these five educators will be awarded $1,000 each to be used to bring the projects to fruition.

Each team is required to prepare a 2-3 minute presentation reflecting on their experience and the impact the project had on the community.  Video presentations are encouraged.
