Education Grants for Schools

Education Grants for Schools

Each spring, Corn Belt Energy supports innovation in the classroom through our Education Grants Program. Five schools that serve children of Corn Belt Energy electric members will each be awarded $1,500 to fund a specific program or project that enhances education. In addition, one school will be awarded the $2,000 Jeff Reeves Memorial Education Grant. The Jeff Reeves Memorial Education Grant was established to honor the memory of Corn Belt Energy former President and CEO, Jeff Reeves.

Public or private schools that serve children of Corn Belt Energy members may apply; the school does not need to receive power from Corn Belt Energy. An impartial panel of judges will review the grant applications and preference will be given to projects and programs that enhance learning and are not currently being funded through the school’s budget.

Teachers and administrators of public or private K-12 schools that serve Corn Belt Energy cooperative families may apply. (The school itself does not need to receive electricity from Corn Belt Energy.)
