Safety & Energy Efficiency Education

We provide teachers and school leaders energy education materials that are aligned with core academic standards, such as English Language Arts (ELA) standards, as well as science and health standards. In addition to providing academic content, these materials also convey important safety awareness messaging that shows students and families how to recognize, avoid and safely respond to utility-related incidents.

Supporting Teachers

Through our Positive Energy Teacher Grants, we provide dollar-for-dollar donations for teachers seeking funds for classroom projects, books, educational kits, games and lab equipment to support Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering and Math (STREM) education in our service area. We offer matching funds to public schools where a majority of students come from low-income households.

Energy Efficiency Grants

Our goal of promoting energy efficiency means we’re focused on supporting teacher projects that give public school students a deeper understanding of energy conservation. Our Energy Efficiency Teacher Grants fund classroom projects in public schools within our Oklahoma service area through DonorsChoose.

Scholarship and Workforce Development

We’ve led the way to educate high school, technical school and higher education students about careers in energy in Oklahoma.

Our scholarship opportunities help us attract, recruit and retain a diverse workforce throughout Oklahoma and Arkansas. At the same time, they allow us to build a pipeline of future OG&E workers while promoting growth in the energy and manufacturing industries. To learn more about these exciting scholarships, please visit our partner organization.

Positive Energy Scholarship
We annually award three $60,000 scholarships to high school students seeking a college degree in Oklahoma or Arkansas. Recipients are often first-generation college students, and the scholarship relieves a significant financial burden for families for whom college might otherwise be unattainable.

Sparking Energy Careers
OG&E is a founding member of the Oklahoma Energy Workforce Consortium. Launched in 2020, the consortium successfully advocated for the creation of the Energy Career Cluster in the Oklahoma Career and Technology Education’s instructional framework. The Energy Career Cluster is dedicated to educating students about the importance of the energy industry in Oklahoma and spotlighting the diverse opportunities in the field as career options.
