Trend Micro Accepts Applications for Educational Grant
Trend Micro, a global specialist in security software and solutions, is accepting applications for its Educational Technology Grant program. The grant includes a financial contribution, free professional services and software to public schools anywhere in the U.S.
The grant was created to support the safe and responsible use of technology among students and to help schools prepare students for future educational and career opportunities, Trend Micro said in a press statement.
A total of 12 public schools across the U.S. will be awarded up to $25,000 in cash and services. To apply, schools must have students in grades K-12 with a population between 500 and 1000.
The Educational Technology Grant is part of the company’s 25th anniversary celebrations and reinforces its mission to make digital information circulation safer. As part of its commitment to internet security for all, since 2008 the company has been running the Internet Safety for Kids and Families program, to “help encourage a generation of safe, responsible digital citizens”.
"Our goal is to provide students with the knowledge they need to use technology in ways that help, not harm, themselves or others," said Lynette Owens, global director, Internet Safety for Kids & Families Program at Trend Micro. "We believe that raising a generation of good digital citizens cannot be done with technology alone. Education is critical to our mission."
