Coca-Cola strives to work with local communities to build strong educational opportunities to enhance national productivity. Most robotics and simple machines products, with their strong emphasis on math and science, would more than fill potential educational voids.
This foundation favors requests from the states of Alabama, Indiana, and Iowa. Dekko, too, favors the early-learning and after-school programs. It is geared for preschool through age 18. The mission of any proposal must be strong and futuristic. Educational lexicon would seem to promote robotics and early-learning products as solutions to that end.
This foundation is primarily concerned with innovative instruction models and also has a strong attraction for meeting the needs of underserved students. The deadline for grant applications is November 1.
The Education Program makes grants to improve education by expanding the reach of openly available educational resources, improving California education policies, and by supporting “deeper learning” – a combination of the fundamental knowledge and practical basic skills all students will need to succeed.
This is a formula grant under Title V which stimulates educational innovation by encouraging broad-based reform efforts. The funds may be used for technology, professional development software, or curricular materials.
By supporting nonprofits and school districts in seven Central Texas counties, the foundation aims to increase 21st century skills and give low-income students access to quality careers. The foundation focuses on three initiatives to help achieve this goal: 1) STEM and integrating technology into teaching and learning; 2) improving the quality of and access to out-of-school time programs; and 3) enabling and supporting systems-level change and collaboration to support an excellent education for all Central Texas students.
