Educause Grants for Next Generation Learning Challenges

From the website...

"Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) re-imagines the future of student success with information technology as an essential enabler, making customized, interactive learning possible. We know that technology makes it possible to extend the reach and multiply the benefits of learning innovations for the thousands of students, and especially for those who need it most. NGLC seeks to demonstrate that the power to scale innovation and stimulate adoption through technology-enabled solutions can have a transformative effect on the student experience. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has pledged nearly $20 million to provide grants to organizations and innovators to expand promising technology tools to more students, teachers, and schools.

To learn more about the initial request for proposals (RFP), EDUCAUSE is offering two free webcasts where initiative staff will review the program, highlight the proposal process, and answer questions. Join us on October 19 at 3:00 p.m. ET or October 27 at 1:00 p.m. ET. Pre-proposals for this first wave of funding will be due on November 19, but may be submitted as early as October 25."
