CONSOL Energy Excellence in Education Fund Grants
Projects for the CONSOL Energy Excellence in Education Fund are intended to be small grants to assist teachers and/or schools to supplement supplies and equipment for classroom activities, and/or teacher professional development activities that will directly benefit the students in the classroom(s) and/or school(s).
Preference will be given to projects which are not necessarily covered by the school budget, or would otherwise be supported by out-of pocket expenses by the teacher(s). Grant awards will range from $250 – $500 per request.
Applications will be accepted year-round on a first-come basis, but should be received by the 15th day of February, April, June, August, October or December for Grantmaking Committee review that month and Board approval the following month. Awards will be announced at the end of the month in January, March, May, July, September, and November after receipt of the application.
