Grants of up to $40,000 to USA, Canada, and International K-12 schools and institutions of higher education for a school-wide mobile app that can be used by staff, faculty, and students as a replacement for a current mobile app. Funding is intended to give schools with smaller IT budgets a chance to implement new technology services that meet the needs of institutions and their constituents.
If your institution is looking to replace its current mobile app; consolidate multiple mobile apps into one “umbrella” app; or implement a mobile app for the first time, we recommend applying for this Grant. This Grant offers your institution a chance to financially take on implementing a mobile app with a clear ROI and no hidden costs that typically prevent most mobile apps from being successfully implemented and maintained.
The Student Engagement Mobile App platform provides your students with one stop shop access to their grades, course content, notification, etc., or frequently used applications on the go. The mobile app is not only created in your institution’s branding but also integrates with your institution’s ERP or LMS. In addition, the mobile app solution provides you with out-of-the-box integration, increased engagement and the ability to scale your app or create new features on the go.
