Literacy Courseware Challenge
Mar 29, 2013
The Gates Foundation has announced a $6 million competition, its Literacy Courseware Challenge, to spur development of web-based applications designed to help students in grades 4 through 8 master reading and writing skills. Between 20 to 30 awards are expected in amounts varying from $25K to a whopping $500K. Go big and you might get a chance to go to school as well, as those receiving over $100K will have the opportunity to pilot their products. Proposals are due March 29 by 5:00 pm PT, and grants will be announced in June.
