About the Program

  • Who qualifies for these grants? Any Pre-K through 12th-grade educator who teaches at schools that are powered by Beauregard Electric Cooperative (BECi) or schools located in communities that are served by BECi. Home schools do not qualify for the grant.
  • How much are the mini-grants? A mini-grant for $500 (total) will be given to six individual educators.
  • How can the grant money be used? Mini-grants should be used to facilitate new, innovative, and educational programs within the classroom. Only the imagination of the educator and their students can limit subject matter for projects. The grant can be used for items that will enable the educator and their students to complete and meet the overall objective of the project, like the purchase of books, software, equipment, and supplies.
