CHEVRON'S "Energy for Learning" Classroom Grants
Chevron helps bring school projects to life with "Energy for Learning" classroom grants by donating more than $54,000 to Kern County educators for project funding, which will benefit more than 10,000 students throughout the 2010-2011 school year. The total grant amount represents a 12% increase in project funding compared to last year.
For more than a decade, Chevron has awarded grants to local educators who have a desire to improve the educational outcomes for students through innovative hands-on activities in the areas of math, science, reading, and environmental responsibility. Grant recipients will use the funds to purchase materials, supplies, and equipment needed to implement creative projects that engage students within the classroom.
Since the program's inception in 1999, more than $384,000 has been awarded to benefit approximately 500 classrooms and more than 20,000 students. The grants range from $200 to $800.
The "Energy for Learning" Classroom Grant Program is part of Chevron's California Partnership, an initiative to invest in education and economic development in its home state.
