Computing Partnership Grant Program 

Review RFG Guidelines

 

Goal of the Funding:

Provide funding to Local Education Agencies (LEAs; districts, individuals schools within districts and charter schools) to build kindergarten – post-secondary (K-16) computing programs. These programs could fund activities that create an entire pathway, or target specific components of an existing or future pathway. These grants will be supported with funds provided by the 2017 legislature via Senate Bill (SB) 190.  Applicants may request funds for 1-3 years.

Eligibility: Public K-12 schools (elementary, junior/middle, high), districts and charter schools and consortium applicants are eligible to apply for funding. Grant awardees from the pilot program (High School STEM Industry Certification Computer Science and Information Technology Pathways Project) are eligible to apply for continuing funding.

Funding: Maximum grant amount per year is $50,000 for individual applicants and $100,000 for consortium applicants. Consortia must include two or more LEAs or schools.
