Project Lead the Way Accepting Applications for K-12 Computer Science Programs

Project Lead the Way is a nonprofit organization that provides transformative learning experiences for K-12 students, empowering them to develop in-demand, transportable skills by exploring real-world challenges.

With support from the Astellas USA Foundation, the PLTW Computer Science initiative supports rural teachers in their efforts to inspire future scientists by funding computer science programs. The initiative also seeks to elevate the college and/or career prospects of rural students in the areas of STEM and to improve communities. To be eligible for a grant, schools must offer at least one PLTW Computer Science course beginning in the 2018-19 academic year.

Grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded to public, private, and charter schools located in rural Illinois. (To be eligible, schools must be located in areas that are categorized as Town, Fringe; Town, Distant; Town, Remote; Rural, Fringe; Rural, Distant; or Rural, Remote as defined by the National Center for Education Statistics.)

See the PLTW website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
