Arctic Directory: ExxonMobil contributes $1.8 million to schools

ExxonMobil said Dec. 30 that through its Educational Alliance Program it has awarded $1.8 million in grants this year to 2,400 schools to enhance math and science programs across the United States. It is the 10th consecutive year for the program, which has provided grants to K-12 educational institutions in 42 states and the District of Columbia. Local schools are eligible to apply for Educational Alliance grants by partnering with their nearby Exxon or Mobil branded retailer, the vast majority of which are independently owned and operated. Since 2000, the program has contributed more than $18 million to local schools through Exxon and Mobil retailers. ExxonMobil is a long-standing supporter of math and science education, which includes a $125 million commitment to the National Math and Science Initiative in the United States. Other initiatives include partnerships with former astronauts Bernard Harris and Sally Ride to encourage students to study math and science, and the Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy, a partnership with PGA golfer Phil Mickelson and his wife, Amy, which has equipped more than 2,000 teacher with innovative tools to inspire students in math and science.
