Grants of up to $500 are available to educators, administrators, and youth group leaders in pre-K through grade 12 in geographic areas served by FirstEnergy’s electric utility operating companies–Ohio Edison, the Illuminating Co., and Toledo Edison in Ohio; Pennsylvania Electric, Metropolitan Edison, and Penn Power in Pennsylvania; and Jersey Central Power & Light in New Jersey–and in communities where these companies have facilities. Any original project or program dealing with mathematics, science, and technology education will be considered.
