Verizon Innovative Learning Schools Grants

Description: When we started working in underserved schools in 2012, we set out to use mobile technology to change the way teachers teach and the way students learn. That's how our Verizon Innovative Learning schools program began. We’re revolutionizing the way teachers teach, students learn and in the process changing the way schools prepare kids for their future opportunities. In partnership with Digital Promise, we’re giving free tech, free access and immersive hands-on learning to select underserved middle schools in the Verizon Innovative Learning program. GUIDELINES: For education grants, Verizon Foundation funding is intended to support, among other things, projects that promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (“STEM”), including, for example, summer or after school programs, teacher training, and research on improving learning in STEM areas through use of technology. However, public, charter, and private K-12 schools, as well as libraries, may not use Foundation grant funding to purchase technology hardware (computers, netbooks, laptops, routers), devices (tablets, phones), data or Internet service and access.
