SkillsUSA Announces New Lowe’s Grants for 2011
SkillsUSA is pleased to announce a continuing partnership with Lowe’s. As part of their overall grant to SkillsUSA, Lowe’s will be awarding grants to local chapters of up to $10,000 each for community service projects or campus improvement projects conducted during 2011.
Schools can apply for grants as a whole school, or as an individual training program. Schools may also team up with another SkillsUSA chapter at a different school on a larger project.
There are three grant categories:
- Community Service Grants to improve an aspect of your local community
- Campus Improvement Grants to enhance your school campus or technical lab
- CareerSafe Online training vouchers to promote safety among technical students
To see projects that have been successfully funded over the past several years, visit the Lowe’s Web page (link below) for project summaries. Lowe’s will be reviewing the top applications as selected by a SkillsUSA staff committee and selecting the schools to receive the funds.
Grant applications must be submitted by December 1, 2010. Notification of successful applicants will be in February 2011. Projects may be done during the spring or fall semesters in 2011 and must be completed by November 30, 2011.
If you have questions on the program, please contact Lowe’s grants manager Carol Lowery at 641-512-0504 or firstname.lastname@example.org
