Dec. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- MiCTA, a national non-profit group purchasing and technology advocacy organization, is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for its 2013 Technology Impact and Technology Innovation grant programs for its K-12 and Library members.  The grant programs will provide funding for selected proposals that introduce meaningful technologies or provide innovative technology solutions for K-12 schools, school districts, or libraries that serve elementary and secondary students.

"Technology plays a very important role in education," says John Sundstrom, President of MiCTA. "As a technology focused organization, we're pleased to support our K-12 and Library members in a way that allows them to introduce new technologies into the classrooms. In the 2013 grant cycle, we've actually increased the amount of support available."

The MiCTA K-12/Library Technology Impact Grant seeks to provide up to $25,000 in matching funds for a proposal that will help introduce a technology or service that is currently under a MiCTA contract to a current MiCTA K-12 or Library member.  

A second, separate grant – the MiCTA K-12/Library Technology Innovation Grant – will provide as much as $25,000 in matching funds for a proposal that uses one or more of MiCTA's contracted products to create an innovative technological solution or application that can be used as a model for other MiCTA members.  

The grant program will accept applications from MiCTA members until April 30, 2013. Recipients will be notified sometime in August 2013.  Non-members that wish to submit a proposal must also submit a membership application with their grant materials. For more information regarding the grant program, including application materials, grant guidelines and eligibility requirements, please visit the MiCTA website at http://www.mictatech.org.
