SRS contractor seeks grant applicants

  • Follow Latest News

Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, Savannah River Site’s primary contractor, is accepting applications from educators for its 2010 Innovative Teaching Mini Grants program.

Monetary incentives are provided to educators who demonstrate, through their grant proposals, the use of innovative methods to enhance science, mathematics and technology programs in the classroom.

Elementary and middle public school educators in the seven-county Central Savannah River Area (Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, and Edgefield counties in South Carolina, and Columbia and Richmond counties in Georgia) are eligible to receive grants in $500, $750 or $1,000 amounts.

“As a company that relies heavily on technology, we will continue supporting efforts to enhance students’ understanding of math, science and technology. Those skills go a long way towards ensuring that we have a sufficient pool of skilled, educated workers ready to meet future workforce demands,” said Garry Flowers, SRNS President and CEO.

Winners, and all others who submitted proposals, will be honored at the awards ceremony in April.

Applications were mailed directly to the eligible schools earlier this month. Interested teachers may obtain applications from their school principal or SRNS Program Coordinator, Angela P. Martin (803-952-9120). Applications are also available on the SRS web site:

Grant proposal applications must be received at SRS by March 5, 2010. Applications cannot be hand-delivered by non-SRS employees.

I assume there is no attempt

I assume there is no attempt through this program to put a happy face on the big government operation known as SRS.
