Salt River Project is offering grants in Phoenix and Pinal County to teachers looking for ways to engage their students in the classroom.
“Our educational programs are STEM focused, which helps build a stronger educational foundation for students to develop the skills they need to become SRP’s future workforce,” said Kevin Rolfe, SRP senior education representative.
“From teacher workshops to grants for our educators, SRP is empowering teachers to create classrooms where everyone can succeed.”
STEM focuses on science, technology, engineering and math along with social studies.
SRP Classroom Connections program consists of:
Learning Grants by SRP, which provide funding up to $5,000 per school for projects and programs that “incorporate innovative teaching strategies in math and science and meet performance standards related to Arizona Academic Standards.”
History and Social Science Grants by SRP, which supports teaching in history, geography, civics, government and economics and meet performance standards related to the Arizona Academic Standards. Up to $2,500 is available per educator.
SRP contributes more than $1.4 million to education initiatives, grants and partnerships throughout Arizona, in addition to providing free training and resources to educators, according to a release.
In addition to Phoenix and Pinal County, all educators at public and nonprofit private school in Gila and Yavapai counties are eligible as well as Page, St. Johns and Page community chapters, SRP officials said.
