The CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation’s Teachers and Technology grant program opened its application process Oct. 1 for teachers in CenturyLink’s local service areas who want to innovatively implement technology in their classrooms to increase student achievement.

Full-time PreK-12 classroom teachers in public or private schools in CenturyLink residential service areas are eligible to apply. Visit http://fsrequests.com/CenturyLinkGrant to apply for a grant. The deadline for applications is Jan. 2, 2015.

“We are very pleased to be a part of providing innovative technology in the classroom that enhances the learning experience for students in these schools,” said John Dreher, CenturyLink vice president and general manager for Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Oklahoma. “It is exciting to see teachers implement creative teaching techniques that assist students in hands-on learning.”

The Foundation will award more than $1.4 million in grants to support technology in the classroom through its 2014-2015 Teachers and Technology program, offered throughout the company’s service areas in the U.S.

Grant winners will be announced between April 1 – May 15, 2015.
