CenturyLink is offering $70,000 in competitive grants for teachers to implement technology in their classrooms. The purpose of the grant is to recognize teachers who are using technology in innovative ways to improve student achievement and to increase the use of technology by sharing proven methods.
Throughout the last eight years, CenturyLink has provided more than $600,000 in grants. Previous winning applications have ranged from robotics and rocketry to innovative "treadmill desks." Last year's grants included funding for Lenovo ThinkPad tablets for a classroom in Middleton, laptop computers for science labs in Eagle and a computer engraver to help students with limited physical ability in Boise engrave high-quality items.
Grant proposals may be written for up to $5,000 and used to purchase supplies, materials, software, and/or hardware. All Idaho K-12 public and private school classroom educators that teach within communities served by CenturyLink are eligible to apply.
Don't miss this exciting opportunity! Grant applications are due April 26, 2013 by 5:00 pm/MST. Awards will be announced in May 2013. For more information, please visit click here.
