The Jared Polis Foundation is offering $1,500 mini-grants as part of its commitment to enhance technology-learning opportunities for children in Colorado.
Deadline: Nov. 10.
Through its partnership with the Community Computer Connection, computers donated by individuals and corporations are refurbished and distributed to schools and nonprofits for a small administrative fee. The foundation has created a technology mini-grant program to enhance and expand the utility of these computers or other existing classroom technology.
Mini-grants of up to $1,500 will be awarded for the purchase of hardware such as digital or video cameras, interactive whiteboards, interactive response systems, tablets, e-readers, and chromebooks; for the purchase of software; or for technology conference registration fees. Teacher-applicants can request tablets and chromebooks but not wi-fi access or capital improvements to support technology.
Applicants must be a teacher in a Colorado public school and request technology for themselves only. The technology requested must be used by the teacher applying for it.
