Sprint (http://www.sprint.com/responsibility/commitment.html/) and the Sprint Foundation are accepting applications for the 2009 Sprint Character Education Grant Program.

Open to all U.S. public schools (K-12) and U.S. public school districts, the initiative provides grant funding to support character education programs promoting leadership, voluntarism, character education, and school pride. Grants will fund the purchase of resource materials, supplies, teacher training, and equipment that facilitates character education for K-12 students.

Examples of programs that the Sprint Character Education Grant Program will fund include character education curriculum and character education teacher training, direct project-related costs for service-learning programs, and leadership and mentor training.

Public schools may apply for individual school grants of up to $5,000 each; public school districts can apply for district-wide grants of up to $25,000 each.
