Hewlett-Packard Co.’s 2007 Technology for Teaching Grants support efforts to improve student achievement in U.S. schools through the innovative use of classroom technology. K-12 public schools are eligible for $3.9 million in cash and equipment from HP; proposals will be accepted from all subject areas, but preference will be given to projects with a focus on math or science. Two- and four-year colleges and universities are eligible for grants totaling $2.8 million in cash and equipment to support the redesign of math, science and engineering courses, with the ultimate goal of increasing the number of students graduating with high-tech degrees. This year, extra consideration is being given to proposals related to environmental engineering and green product design. Based on the outcomes of the projects funded through this initiative in 2007, HP may offer grant recipients the opportunity to receive higher-value grants in 2008.
