New Grants for Tech

We recently had a school ask us if we were aware of any scholarships that would help pay for technology like EHR Tutor. The last time we checked on grants was a year ago so we did a little searching around and found three options for schools who are looking for funding.

1. FRED Grants - These technology grants are available to rural schools in denominations of 2,000-5,000 dollars. FRED grants renew every year so you can apply through the website when you're ready - http://www.fred.org/tech.html

2. Touchstone Energy Classroom Technology Grants - These grants are available to schools in the Touchstone Tri-County Area and the application for 2015 can be found on the grant website starting in November - http://www.homeworks.org/content/touchstone-energy-classroom-technology-grants

3. Perkins Grants - We've had a few schools pay for our system using Perkins money and although there's a bit of an application process and quite a few hoops to jump through in terms of timing, these grants seem to be pretty plentiful for any CTE programs. Google "Perkins Grants [STATE NAME]" and you should find available funding in your state.

Good luck and let us know if you've found any grants other schools might find useful!
