The Power of a Good Education

The Alabama Power Foundation is proud to serve our children through a number of initiatives designed to improve their education.  After all, of the many things we can give our children, a solid education is one that cannot be taken away.

Power to Play Grants

We support high school extracurricular programs. Studies show that students involved in extracurricular activities benefit both academically and in terms of mental health. Similar research has shown that participation in extracurricular activity greatly increases the probability that at-risk students will graduate.

Applications are open through Nov. 25.

Students to Stewards Grants

Today’s students are tomorrow’s stewards. We established our Students to Stewards Grant program to promote stewardship and conservation education across our beautiful state. Since 2014, Students to Stewards has awarded more than 40 grants totaling more than $100,000 to support conservation education in Alabama.

Application dates will be announced soon.
