If you are seeking Government
Grants, the "Federal
Grants" Index is a comprehensive list of government
monies available to help support technology development,
programs, curriculum and infrastructure. Funds available
here promote the breaking of new ground in the use
of technology by society, as well as support establishment
uses in education, public welfare and community development.
Federal monies are available to prepare teachers and
universities as technology becomes an integral part
of education, as well as to fund public access and
community and workforce development.
Keep pace with technological advances, and overcome
the financial shortfall from budgetary restrictions,
by taking advantage of the ongoing grant opportunities
from U.S. government federal agencies, as featured
in recent issues of Technology Grant News. The "Federal
Grants" Index is an invaluable resource for MIS
department chairs, technology coordinators, librarians,
school superintendants, school district supervisors
and development / grant officers.
