AIKEN, S.C. (March 21, 2022) — Savannah River Mission Completion (SRMC), the Savannah River Site Liquid Waste Contractor, is accepting applications from local elementary school teachers for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) grants.


The Power As One Mini-Grant Program is designed to empower educators to promote STEM projects in their classrooms. SRMC will award grants up to $1,000 to teachers to enhance their hands-on STEM capabilities with their students.

“Teachers elevate the mind and give energy to the character of every child,” said Dave Olson, SRMC President and Program Manager. “These grants are one small way we can come alongside our teachers to provide our students with ample opportunities for success. We are one community helping to empower the next generation. Together, we are the Power As One.”


Interested teachers should contact their school’s principal for more information about the SRMC grant program. The deadline to submit applications is April 7, 2022. One application per school will be accepted.
