Exelon Foundation STEM Academy and Scholarship

The Exelon Foundation STEM Academy is designed to inspire and equip the next generation of climate
leaders. In partnership with NEED, the Academy hosts young women in 10th & 11th grades for a week-long
curriculum in the greater Chicago, Philadelphia and Washington DC/Baltimore area. The Academy brings
together STEM exploration through interactive hands-on activities, field trips to Exelon worksites, career
panels with employees and leadership development training. Over 800 participants have attended the
Academy since 2018.

In 2021 the Exelon Foundation launched the STEM Academy Scholarship. Open to Academy alumnae,
the scholarship covers all costs associated with college, including tuition, room and board and other expenses.
Scholarship recipients have mentorship placement and are encouraged to apply for internships with Exelon
throughout college. Alima Conde is a STEM Academy Scholar attending the University of North Carolina
at Charlotte. “Technology is a space for women to create, inspire and advance the next generation of
females to show that anything is possible.”

HBCU Corporate Scholars Program

Launched in partnership with UNCF in 2021, the HBCU Corporate Scholars Program provides scholarship
assistance, internship experiences and early-career readiness training to students attending historically
Black colleges and universities (HBCUs). To date 30 scholars participate in the program, receiving up to
$25,000 of need-based scholarship aid per year for four years to study in STEM fields. Kiley Strong is a
HBCU Corporate Scholar at Howard University. “Having the opportunity to come to Howard with the
assistance of the Exelon Scholar Program has taught me the authenticity of my perspective, and that if
something doesn’t challenge me, it won’t change me.”

Green Lab Grants Program

The Exelon Foundation has provided Green Lab Grants to 49 education-focused schools and non-profit
organizations since 2021. Grants support hands-on educational spaces where middle and high school
students can prepare for STEM careers. Public and private schools, as well as nonprofit organizations
that run out-of-school programs serving Title I-eligible students, are eligible to apply.
Energizing Student Potential

The Energizing Student Potential (ESP) program is a collaborative STEM initiative
combining classroom activities with a school energy audit by students, a student-run
energy fair and an energy-focused STEM challenge. Teacher Training Workshops cover
a variety of energy topics including the Science of Energy, Forms and Transformations,
Energy Sources, Electricity, Transportation, Climate Science, Energy Efficiency and
Energy Careers.
During the 2022-2023 academic year, the program impacted the following:
