Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program

Mar 24, 2014


The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program at the Institute of Education Sciences (Institute) provides up to $1,050,000 in funding to small business firms and partners for the research and development (R&D) of commercially viable education technology products.

The program accepts proposals through two tracks:

Through its education track, the Institute funds the R&D of products to improve student learning directly or indirectly (e.g., through teacher practices) in authentic education delivery settings (e.g., schools, after-school programs, or distance learning programs).

Through its special education track, the Institute funds the R&D of products for use by infants, toddlers, or students with or at risk for disabilities, or teachers (or other instructional personnel, related services providers, or family members) in early intervention or special education.

The proposal submission deadline is March 24, 2014 at 2PM EST.
