EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY GRANTS

 

 The “Educational Technology” Index will allow K-20 schools, after-school programs, non-profit educational organizations, colleges and universities to meet the constant challenge of providing up- to-date technological training, equipment and materials by drawing on new available resources. Expand your present offerings, or create new and challenging courses with the help of cash grants, hardware, software, computer/IT training, and staff professional development grants, as well as funding for new programs and curriculum development.

The “Educational Technology” Index gathered from the most recent issues of Technology Grant News, provides a new outlook and practical resources for K-20 instructors, school superintendants and district supervisors, technology coordinators, and development/grant officers.

The funds raised through PAFE to enhance middle school science programs at three schools, represent a long-term capital investment in technology. Those interested in starting a new local education foundation must consider many issues before they begin….”
