Gates Foundation Grants $750K to Grow Tech-Supported Tutoring Centers in Indianapolis

Mar 15, 2019

PEER-TO-PEER: The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has given a $750,000 grant to Crossroads Education, an Indianapolis company that builds in-school tutoring centers for students to help their colleagues. The funding will support its plans to build more centers in four middle schools in the Indianapolis area, the city announced in a Facebook post Thursday.

Crossroads Education centers use software to track student progress, connect students with peers for tutoring and help students visualize math equations.

This isn’t the foundation’s first rodeo in Indianapolis. In 2003, the foundation granted $11.3 million to help create 10 new small high schools and shrink five large high schools, all targeted to help disadvantaged students in and around the city.
