Teachers! - Grant Program for teaching Energy Conservation

Many times I have posted about how grant programs were started to help bring a greater awareness of something - in this case it is about energy conservation.  17 teachers in Texax are going to share in a $1 Million Dollar Grant and Scholarship Awards program because they were teaching energy conservation projects to their students.  Some of the projects included students building a fuel efficient car and cooking with solar power. The individual grant awards were either $5,000.00 or $10,000 grant awards to the teachers.  This grant program was started so that the students would learn to become more energy efficient (and provide better and alternative uses of energy and energy conservation.  The teachers were also awarded $300,000 in scholarships so that they could attend a three-day conference, a science kit and related material to help teach their students about energy conservation.

The above information is also a very good example of a grant program that is provided not by the government but by a business corporation. 

You have to look at more than just the government sites for grant funding because many, many other entities are providing grant programs for teachers.
