2008 Technology for Teaching Grants Open

##AUTHORSPLIT##<--->

HP has opened up its 2008 Technology for Teaching Grant program, offering $6 million to K-12 and higher education institutions in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. The initiative is aimed at efforts to improve education through the use of innovative uses of technology in the classroom, increase the number of underrepresented students on a path toward high-tech careers, and enhance student success in math, science and engineering.

For this year's program, the Technology for Teaching Grant will award $3 million to K-12 schools and $3 million to two- and four-year colleges and universities. On the K-12 side, proposals will be accepted for programs covering any subject area, although, according to HP, the grant awards will favor science- and math-focused proposals. Also, according to the company, "extra consideration" will be given to "schools serving low-income student populations."

On the higher ed side, the focus will be on math, science, computer science, information systems, and engineering with an eye toward increasing the number of "high-tech" degrees awarded. Awards will be granted for technology-enhanced instruction in the classroom, and special consideration will be given for proposals targeted toward underrepresented students.

Further information, including including application materials, can be found at the link below.
