Grants valued at up to $25,000 to USA, Canada, and International K-12 school and accredited IHEs for solutions that enhance the use of information technology (IT). Funding is intended to help schools streamline their Financial Aid procedures by increasing the number of financial aid applications while lowering the per-student cost in higher education.

These grants are designed to give institutions, with a smaller IT budget, a chance to implement modern technology services that meet the needs of institutions and their constituents. The grant offers institutions a chance to financially take on implementing a comprehensive Financial Aid solution with a clear ROI and no hidden costs that typically prevent most solutions from being successfully implemented and maintained.
