Microsoft Unlimited Potential grant for tech training

Posted by on January 28, 2005

Funder: Microsoft Community Affairs
Program: Unlimited Potential

Summary: UP grants provide nonprofit organizations with funding to support technology training programs ranging from learning basic computer skills to using advanced business productivity applications. Donations of cash, software, curriculum, and technical expertise enable individuals to learn about technology and gain the information technology skills needed for employment in the IT field or other industry sectors. UP grants are made through Microsoft’s U.S. and international subsidiaries, which work closely with local organizations to identify "Community-Based Technology and Learning Centers" (CTLC) where IT skills training is a primary focus. A CTLC is a free or low-cost, friendly place where people of all ages and abilities can learn about computers, use the Internet, explore new careers, further their education, participate in community activities, or develop technology skills. Many CTLCs are located in community centers, schools, libraries, housing facilities, or other convenient locations. Unsolicited proposals are reviewed on an ongoing basis.
