School Grants

Attention Local Teachers!

Apply for your 2023/2024 Touchstone Energy Classroom Empowerment Grants

Does your school or classroom need new materials?  Can your students benefit from new programs and educational resources?  We thought so.

SouthEastern Illinois Electric Cooperative is once again coordinating this grant program with Touchstone Energy for our local teachers and administrators.  The grants will be provided for innovative, unfunded projects or materials. Qualifying projects are those that improve the learning environment or increase educational resources for the school.

A panel of judges will determine which projects will be awarded the grants.  Grant applications are due by November 10, 2023. Grant awards will be announced on January 26, 2024. For a grant application and guideline documents are at the bottom of this page or contact Stefanie Tripp at 1-618-273-3806.  It only takes a few minutes to apply.

Since 2006, SEIEC has distributed a total of $68,400 Touchstone Energy Classroom Empowerment Grants throughout the Cooperative’s service area.
