This grant is an educational award that assists educators in the purchase of SMART products for their classrooms. Developed by the SMARTer Kids Foundation, the grant helps tens of thousands of K-12 schools, higher-education facilities, and technical institutions acquire interactive technology by increasing its affordability. The SMARTer Kids Grant for SMART Products is available to all public or private, accredited, not-for-profit educational institutions, authorized homeschoolers, museums, science centers, and libraries involved in K-12, college, university, vocational and technical instruction or administration. Institutions must provide educational programming, which is recognized by your local school district and be located in the United States or Canada. Grants will be awarded based on the feasibility, originality, and innovative elements provided on the grant application, as judged by a committee appointed by the Foundation. Homeschoolers must supplement their application form with a copy of the letter of intent or registration form that was submitted to the local school board or department of education declaring homeschooling status. Additionally, we require a copy of the confirmation letter from the school board or department of education acknowledging the applicant has declared homeschooling as a primary method for instruction. Grant amounts are 15 to 70 percent of the suggested list price for the purchase of qualifying SMART products. To receive pricing, please contact the SMART Education Reseller in your area or the Foundation.
