Power Up

Power Up logo

Our annual grant program for local teachers.

To enhance the education of area students, the White River Valley Electric Trust Board annually allocates funds from Operation Round Up to Power Up — the organization’s educational grant program. Teachers located at schools within WRVEC service territory are eligible to apply for funds to support projects outside of normal school funding for grades Pre K-12. 

The following information must be submitted for consideration:

  • Online application
  • Teacher’s plan
  • Letter of project approval from the school district’s administrative office and contact information
  • Itemized list of supplies requested (not to exceed $750)
