Teacher Grants

Program Objective

At Northwestern REC we recognize that the children of today are the members of tomorrow. The Clearly Brighter Teacher Grant Program was designed to reach these kids by helping their teachers better afford innovative and effective educational curriculum that is not covered by traditional school financing. .

 

About the Program

Individual teachers can apply for grants up to $250, while teams of teachers (two or more) can apply for grants up to $500. Each year, Northwestern REC will award a total of $3,000 through this grant program.

 

Program Timeline

Grants are awarded annually in a competitive evaluation process. Applications are accepted online beginning on May 1, and will be awarded in October. The deadline to submit grant applications is 5 p.m. on September 15. Awards will be announced in October. Winners and non-winners will receive notices in the mail.

 

Eligibility

Educators in public and private schools, pre-k through 12th grade, as well as home school organizations within Northwestern REC’s service territory are eligible to participate. It is not required for teachers or schools to receive electric service from Northwestern REC. Grants are awarded for projects in any discipline and are intended to help teachers bring special, hands-on projects to the classroom. Projects for special needs adults will also be considered.

Individual teachers can apply for grants up to $250, while teams of teachers (two or more) can apply for grants up to $500. Each year, Northwestern REC will award a total of $3,000 through this grant program.
