Technology Grants For Schools, Education, Teachers, Information Technology & Sample Grants.
The federal government, state, county and city governments, as well as private and corporate foundations all award technology grants. These grants are critical for organizations that want to use the most useful and effective technology for their projects, but who need assistance purchasing them. Grants can be used for projects related to schools, teachers, information technology, healthcare, among other subjects.
Which Organizations Give Technology Grants?
The types of organizations that award technology grants are as diverse as the types of projects that are funded with them. Some of the largest foundations that provide technology grants are the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Community Foundation of Silicon Valley, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, W. M. Keck Foundation, SBC Foundation, Merck Company Foundation, Intel Foundation, Henry Luce Foundation, and the Shell Oil Company Foundation.
Total giving by these foundations is more than $654 million dollars, with the David and Lucile Packard Foundation taking the lead at $277,891,647.
Who Gets Technology Grants?
The largest percentage of technology grants are awarded to non-profit organizations, healthcare agencies, colleges and universities, local government agencies, tribal institutions and schools. For-profit organizations are generally not eligible for technology grants unless they are conducting research or creating jobs.
How USGG Can Help Win Technology Grants
US Government Grants is experienced in writing technology grants. Its founder and lead instructor, Beverly Santicola, has a strong record of success writing grants for elementary-secondary education, healthcare, science, economic development and labor-management cooperation. With an average of $1 million dollars in grant awards each year, Santicola has authored technology grants that have:
- Increased learning outcomes in reading, writing and mathematics
- Increased interest and learning outcomes in science and citizenship
- Promoted labor-management cooperation
- Encouraged economic growth
- Advanced professional development
- Established community technology centers
- Increased access to healthcare
- Facilitated early detection of breast cancer
In her grant writing workshops, Santicola shares the secrets to her success and provides students with samples of many of her award-winning technology grant proposals. In the workshops, she shares stories of unique and creative proposals that generated over $1 million in technology grants.
Her success stories include getting funding for projects such as a project that taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students to build computers in less than 30 minutes, and also taught them to teach other 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students how to build computers. With projects like these, Santicola demonstrates how technology can increase student learning outcomes. In this project, student outcomes increased by 22% in science in just two years, as well as increased learning outcomes in all core curriculum classes. Grant workshop students receive workbooks that include a copy of the curriculum for this project and also the process flow chart that the 4th grade students created. This level of access to a winning project gives participants an inside view of how to win a grant.
Santicola has led projects that have received local, state and national recognition for excellence and was even awarded a $375,000 grant to produce a multi-media documentary of one extremely successful elementary school project in a rural community of Ohio.
As a result of her success in winning Technology Grants, Santicola recently launched the Technology Grants Community that provides free educational information on technology grants for its members. There is no cost for membership to the Technology Grants Community and each week we list new grant opportunities for various fields on interest such as K-12 education, law enforcement, fire and emergency management, healthcare, people with disabilities, Native American Tribes, Native Hawaiian populations, energy and the environment.
