(Black PR Wire) As part of our commitment to STEM education, the NextEra Energy Foundation will award up to 10 schools each a $50,000 classroom makeover grant to improve technology, equipment and resources for the next generation of innovators.

This grant is intended to provide transformational learning opportunities for Black students in a classroom setting. Funds are available to address needs in infrastructure, technology or resources (i.e. software, equipment, books, training of teachers, tutors, paraprofessionals) to advance the STEM curriculum and increase exposure of Black students to STEM education and careers.

Grants will be awarded to five classrooms in the Florida Power & Light/Gulf Power service area and five grants in NextEra Energy’s service area to 10 schools per year from 2021 through 2024. This grant is open to all public, private and charter schools and all grade levels.
