For those schools serving rural populations or running programs that provide distance learning to sparsely populated communities, here are some grants that make paying for an academic EHR (like EHR Tutor!!) a little easier.
1. The DLT Grant Program
$50,000 - $500,000
What the website says:
The DLT Grant Program competitively selects and funds projects that place distance learning and/or telemedical equipment in rural facilities capable of linking local service providers of education and/or healthcare directly to educators and medical professionals and specialists located in distant areas. Rural facilities can include public or private schools, training facilities, higher learning institutions, libraries, health clinics, rural hospitals, ambulance services and other rural community facilities. The kinds of learning and health care services that are funded originate at the grass roots level and represent needed services which are tailored to the areas from which the projects originate.
What it means for your school:
Does your school provide e-learning or distance learning options? If so you may qualify by connecting rural students to "education/nursing specialists". EHR Tutor fits in to this grant perfectly considering it's a web based program. Which means, students can log in anywhere in the world (perfect for e-learnings and distance learning)
One of the most popular and competitive FRED programs, the Technology Grants for Rural Schools program, was created to help meet the growing need for innovative technology in the classroom. The grants strive to help public schools, served by OPASTCO members, connect to high speed broadband, bring modern computers to every classroom, and ensure effective, engaging software and online resources are an integral part of the curriculum.
