Grants to USA nonprofits for a broad range of education projects operating inside or outside the USA with a particular interest in supporting underserved populations and the creative use of technology. Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible before the deadline.

Funding is primarily awarded as seed money to new or expanding programs.

The grantor will fund programs that:

- Support the growth of innovative, effective educational practices
- Support education in its broadest definition; i.e., the transmission of information
- Support projects centered on learners across the lifespan.
- Take place in traditional school-based settings, take the form of vocational education, distance learning, or the transmission of cultural information.

Funding will be provided for one-time seed grants to innovative projects which may not otherwise get off the ground. Ideally, grantees will assist in building an infrastructure to support an ongoing project. The Foundation will assist grantees in securing future funding, if necessary.
