This program from the SMARTer Kids Foundation helps teacher preparation and training facilities around the world purchase their first SMART Technologies products. PREP Grants, which cover up to 70 percent of the suggested list price of qualifying SMART Roomware products, are available to all accredited, nonprofit North American universities, colleges, institutes, or centers involved in pre-service or in-service teacher training or courses leading to an education degree or professional teaching certification, as well as all local, district, or regional in-service training centers that train a minimum of 100 teachers per year. Roomware products include interactive whiteboards, multimedia cabinets, and computer-lab instruction software. Since the program’s inception in 1999, the PREP Grant has enabled hundreds of teacher-training facilities worldwide to integrate Roomware into their teacher-preparation programs. Applicants are encouraged to apply early, because only 500 grants per product class will be awarded.
