AT&T Foundation Wireless Technology Grant Program

"The AT&T Foundation, the corporate philanthropy organization of AT&T Inc., has announced a $1.5 million competitive grant program to help nonprofits integrate wireless communications technology into educational outreach projects. Open to 501(c)(3) public charities and government instrumentalities across the United States, the program will help nonprofits deliver educational content and enhance learning opportunities in the communities they serve.

The AT&T Foundation will award one-time, education-focused, wireless technology grants ranging from $2,500 to $25,000 each for wireless applications and hardware. Examples of eligible projects include the enrichment of museum visits through the development of audio and video content accessible from visitors' mobile phones; the creation of AT&T Wi-FiSM hot spots for students and community members; the development of educational curriculum designed to be accessed from wireless devices; delivering supplemental educational content via mobile phone calls, text messages, and/or Multimedia Messaging Service; and the development of community education podcasts.

To qualify for a grant, organizations must utilize the funds for projects that enhance the delivery of education through wireless technology in settings that engage youth and adults in life-long learning. Additionally, 51 percent or more of the project must target underserved populations, including racial and ethnic groups, low-income populations, seniors, youth, and/or people with disabilities."

Deadline: October 19, 2007
