BDPA Cincinnati Seeks Major Grant Funding from Interactive Intelligence Foundation

BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF) partnered with BDPA Cincinnati chapter to submit a $20,000 grant proposal to the Interactive Intelligence Foundation.  Interactive Intelligence Foundation seeks to provide funding for 2016-2017 grant periods. It is important that the grant proposal contains the following minimum criteria:
  • How well your organization’s project aligns with the mission of the foundation, which is to utilize available resources and funding to foster life improvements for at-risk youth.
  • Heavier weight is given to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) projects, as well as those projects with a specific start/stop time and measurable outcomes.
  • The Interactive Intelligence Foundation does not fund administrative or overhead costs, all money received from the Foundation should be appropriated to the specific project that funds were requested for.
  • The demographics of age groups served by the organization should be 0 – 18 years of age.
2015 BDPA Cincinnati SITES Students & Instructors
We feel that the Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship program conducted by our BDPA Cincinnati chapter meets these criteria.    We should have an answer by mid-January 2016 on our request.

BETF seeks to work with any chapter interested in submitting grant proposals.  Please reach out to the BETF executive director if you are interested in learning more.
