HP Technology for Teaching Grant Initiative Announces Guidelines for K-16 Education
Deadline: February 15, 2007
The HP Technology for Teaching Grant Initiative is designed to support the innovative use of mobile technology in K-16 education and to help identify K-12 public schools and two- and four-year colleges and universities that HP might support with future grants. Based on the outcomes of the projects funded through this initiative in 2007, HP may offer some grant recipients additional, higher-value grants in 2008.
In 2007, HP will award approximately $10 million in total cash and equipment to schools in the U.S. and Puerto Rico through the HP Technology for Teaching Program, including reinvestment for selected projects previously funded.
K-12 Request for Proposals: In 2007, HP will grant awards to K-12 public schools in the United States, including Puerto Rico, that are using a collaborative, team-based approach to implementing technology integration projects. The activities of the project must be focused on using technology to teach, rather than on teaching students to use technology. HP will select teams of five teachers from approximately thirty schools to receive the equipment, professional development, and support they need to effectively integrate technology into their instruction. The value of the grant award to each school is at least $30,000.
Higher Education Request for Proposals: For the 2007 U.S. HP Technology for Teaching Grant in Higher Education, HP invites a teams consisting of at least two faculty members to propose a course redesign project for one or more undergraduate courses that are part of an accredited degree program in one or more of the following eligible disciplines: mathematics; science (physical, environmental, computer); and engineering (electrical, computer, mechanical, environmental, materials). HP will select approximately forty campuses in the U.S. and Puerto Rico to each receive a product bundle for one faculty member and a classroom valued at approximately $55,000; a $19,000 cash grant for the principal investigator to use to support the work of the project; and attendance at the annual HP Technology for Teaching Worldwide Higher Education conference in early 2008.
The online application system will open on January 8, 2007. Proposals must be submitted by February 15, 2007.
Requests for Proposals, with specific details about the grant goals and application process, are available at the HP Web site now.
