Grants-Learning Through Technology

Beginning in the Spring of 2017, MLTI began offering direct grants to schools as an alternative to offering pre-determined packages from vendors. A school is eligible for a grant if:

  • It has 7th and 8th grade students and staff who are not already participating in MLTI through a 2016 opt-in;
  • It is a high school that provides devices for its students, but wants a grant to provide devices for staff;
  • It is a CTE center or region that is not already participating in MLTI through 2016 opt-in.

The amount of the grant is $200 per year for 3 years, for each eligible student or staff member. Grant recipients must provide a personal portable device for each eligible student and staff member, and are expected to manage, maintain and repair those devices. In addition, recipients are expected to provide professional development for staff to ensure that the devices are used effectively. Grant funds can be used for the cost of devices, accessories, professional development, technical support and infrastructure needed to conduct an educational technology program.

See a list of MLTI Grant Recipients, and the devices they selected, below.

For questions about the MLTI Grant Program, contact Beth Lambert at (207) 624-6642 or beth.lambert@maine.gov

 

Applying for an MLTI Grant (2019-2020)

Step 1.  

Determine whether your school is eligible for a 2019-2020 grant. The list indicates whether a school is eligible for:

  •  (a) A grant based on 7th and 8th grade students and staff; 
  •  (b) A grant based on 9th-12th grade staff; or 
  •  (c) Grants for both.


If your school is not on the list, but you believe that it should be, please contact Beth Lambert for an eligibility determination.

Step 2. 

Read the criteria for a 1:1 grant program.
 

Step 3. 

Fill out the following documents. Feel free to attach relevant documents, excel spreadsheets, etc, as necessary to answer the questions:
 

1:1 Application

Budget Form

Student and Staff Count Worksheet
 
 
Step 4.

E-mail the completed application to the MLTI Project Office. Send the application in Excel, Word, Pages or other format that can be copied into a state contract form. You may scan and email the page of the application that is signed by the superintendent.


Step 5.

The Department will review applications and notify the contact person listed in the application of any questions and the results of the review. Once applications are approved, the Department will send a state contract form to the superintendent for signature.
