You motivate youth to think creatively, to step into leadership roles and to address the challenges of the future. If adequate funding is all that stands between you and a new classroom adventure, American Electric Power's Teacher Vision Grant program may help.

Who can apply?

Teachers of pre-K through Grade 12 who live or teach in the AEP service area or in communities with major AEP facilities may apply.

We'll Consider

Any project that has an academic focus and a goal to improve student achievement will be considered. AEP has a special interest in science, mathematics, technology, the study of energy and a sustainable environment, and energy efficiency.

Highly regarded projects will incorporate matching funds, community resources, and interdisciplinary or team-teaching projects. We do not fund stipends or meals.

How to apply

In order to be considered for the AEP Teacher Vision Grant, a completed application must be submitted before midnight EST of the third Friday in December.

Grant awards range from $100 to $500. Per School year, a limited of one grant is awarded to a teacher and up to two grants per School/Educational Organization.

The annual deadline for AEP Teacher Vision Grant applications is midnight on the third Friday in December, and grants are announced by mid-February. All grant recipients are required to submit an on-line project evaluation by the end of the subsequent school year following the grant award. Recipients who receive a check payable to an individual rather than to a school or non-profit organization will be required to submit project receipts. Higher-resolution digital photographs may be used to enhance project summaries. AEP may use the photos for publicity purposes.

AEP may discontinue this grant program at any time without prior notice.
