NextEra Energy Classroom Makeover Grant Program

As part of our commitment to support innovation and technology in schools, the NextEra Energy Foundation will award classroom makeover grants for $50,000 each up to five schools in Florida.

This grant program is intended to provide transformational learning opportunities in historically underrepresented and/or under-served K-12 classrooms. Funds are available to address needs in infrastructure, technology or resources that will advance STEM curricula, exposure, and careers to diverse students in a classroom setting.

This grant is open to all public, private and charter schools and all grade levels in our service area in Florida. Grants are also available to schools in areas served by our sister company, NextEra Energy Resources. As with all foundation grants, no customer dollars are involved.

2024-2025 Classroom Makeover Grant applications will open in the fall of 2024.
