Frontier Communications: Teacher Cybersecurity GrantsDeadline: April 30, 2017
The Internet provides students a vast resource for research and learning. Yet, navigating the beneficial and dangerous places online has been an ever-evolving battle. Frontier Communications asks: What have you as a teacher and your classes learned when it comes to cyber safety? Educators are asked to write a brief essay or create a short video about the ways they and their students apply what they’ve learned about cyber safety. Entries are judged on the completion of all directions, creativity, the the opportunity for student enrichment, and opportunities for student participation.
Amount: $1,000 to be applied toward technological equipment or supplies for the classroom.
Eligibility: All applicants must be employed full-time as (1) a professor at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university or in an accredited graduate school program or (2) a Kindergarten-12th grade teacher at an elementary school, middle school, or high school in the United States. A participating elementary school, middle school, or high school must appear in the National Center for Education Statistics database (available at https://nces.ed.gov/ccd/schoolsearch/). Applicants must also intend to continue teaching full-time throughout the Spring of 2017 and throughout the 2017-2018 academic year. All applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent legal residents of the United States.
