Google Invites Grant Applications for Computer Science Education Workshops
Deadline: February 16, 2013

Google is accepting applications for funds from its CS4HS (Computer Science for High School) program, which is intended to promote the teaching of computer science and computational thinking in the high school and middle school curriculum. Grants are awarded to universities and colleges in support of hands-on workshops to train K-12 teachers in how best to incorporate computer science into their curriculum.

Grants support two- to three-day workshops for local high school and middle school computer science teachers. The workshops incorporate informational talks by industry leaders and discussions on new and emerging CS curricula at the high school and middle school level.

Any university, community college, or technical school in the United States, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, China, Australia, and New Zealand is welcome to apply. (The application process varies from region to region.)

The program seeks to support programs that are hands-on, feature a community component, provide participants with concrete takeaways, and offer follow-up to the initial program. Proposals should provide detailed budgets and describe the expected reach of the program. (The average CS4HS program has anywhere from twenty-five to a hundred participants. )

Funding varies based on the number of participants and other associated costs, with a maximum of $15,000 per project.

Visit the CS4HS program Web site for complete grant guidelines, region-specific application procedures, and the online application form.
