- By Michelle Rutledge
2/26/2007—Extricom, a manufacturer of WLAN technologies, announced the start of its 2007 Education Grant program for higher education and K-12 schools. The grant will award a total of $1 million worth of wireless local area network (WLAN) equipment and discounts to schools.
Awards will be granted to schools demonstrating "immediate need of WLAN technologies," according to Extricom.
"The modern school is increasingly driven by technology, supporting both the educational process and the operation of the school campus itself. Wireless LAN plays an important role in that infrastructure, enabling network services to be quickly and cost-effectively extended, thereby maximizing access to learning and administrative resources," according to the company.
Universities, colleges, and K-12 schools (public and private) in the United States and Canada are eligible to apply. Schools wishing to apply for grants must fill out an application form provided on Extricom's website at http://www.extricom.com/ShowDoc.asp?Page=News&MenuID=340. Application deadline is April 15, 2007.
