K-12 educators across the Nashville Electric Service (NES) area are encouraged to apply for the Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) STEM Classroom Grant Program for science, technology, engineering and math education.
The program funds STEM learning projects in classrooms and schools. Last year’s program awarded $1 million in grants to schools across the Valley, with this year’s total reaching $1.5 million. This year’s application process is starting earlier so teachers have time to submit applications before students arrive for the new school year. It will also expedite grant dispersals before January. The new timeline this will give teachers in schools that receive grants the entire Spring semester to implement their projects.
Teachers can apply for funding up to $5,000 for STEM projects with preference given to applications that explore TVA’s primary area of focus: environment, energy, economic and career development, and community problem- solving. K-12 teachers and school administrators in public or private schools (also K-12) have eligibility to apply, but schools must be in the TVA service area and receive electricity from a local power distributor served by TVA.
