The Alabama Power Foundation accepts applications for the annual Students to Stewards scholarship program.

As part of the foundation’s ongoing environmental and sustainability initiatives, Students to Stewards will be offering grants of up to $3,500 this year to schools in financial need. Grants support conservation education, including classroom courses, field learning, and teacher training.

“Students to Stewards provides hands-on, informative educational programs to educate schools about our state’s incredible natural resources and biological diversity,” said Susan Comensky, vice president of environmental affairs for Alabama Power. “Working with schools and teachers across the state, Students to Stewards helps expand understanding of our natural world and how we can all work together to protect it.”

Since its inception in 2014, Students to Stewards has awarded over 50 scholarships totaling over $100,000. Grants have helped provide resources for a variety of conservation education projects, from building outdoor classrooms to developing lesson plans. Students to Stewards also helps younger generations better understand the many rewarding career opportunities related to science and the environment.

For a school to be eligible for a Students to Stewards scholarship, at least 50% of its full-time student population must receive free or reduced-price lunches. The deadline to apply for a Students to Stewards scholarship is February 11. To learn more about Students to Stewards and the grant criteria, click here.
