Bright Ideas Teacher Grants

Berkeley Electric Cooperative recently awarded area teachers $14,000 in grants as part of its Bright Ideas program. The Bright Ideas Grant Program supports innovative and effective classroom education curriculum that cannot be covered by traditional school financing. Individual teachers can apply for grants up to $1,000 while teams of teachers are eligible for grants up to $1,500. The majority of the money for the grants was raised through fundraising efforts by cooperative employees.

Teachers in public and private schools, K-12 in Berkeley Electric Cooperative’s service area are eligible to participate.
