MCLEAN, VA. (PRWEB) JANUARY 13, 2022
Kajeet®, a leading provider of IoT connectivity, software and hardware solutions that deliver safe, reliable and controlled internet connectivity to nearly 3,000 customers, today announced the launch of its 2022 Homework Gap Grant Program. This funding opportunity will allow K-12 schools and districts, colleges and universities, and public libraries to connect students to safe, reliable internet outside of the classroom.
“At Kajeet, we believe internet access is a basic human right and are fully committed to efforts aimed at closing the digital divide,” said Daniel J. W. Neal, chairman, CEO and founder of Kajeet. “Providing a more equitable future for students everywhere is a top priority at Kajeet and we are thrilled to once again offer a grant opportunity that will help schools and libraries provide critical resources.”
An estimated 12 million students in the U.S. and Canada lack home broadband access, putting a staggering number of school-aged children at a serious learning disadvantage. The 2022 Homework Gap Grant Program is part of Kajeet’s mission to provide students opportunities to access online educational resources anytime, anywhere.
For a decade, Kajeet has been working with education and community leaders to close the digital divide for students, known as the “Homework Gap.” Each grant recipient will receive up to $25,000 worth of Kajeet Education Broadband Solutions, including unlimited student data plans, access to Kajeet Sentinel® platform and devices like, WiFi hotspots, school bus WiFi, routers and LTE-embedded Chromebooks, laptops, and tablets.
The call for entries for Kajeet’s 2022 Homework Gap Grant Program is now open! Qualifying organizations have until March 11, 2022, to apply. Winners will be announced in May. Eligible applicants include all K-12 school districts (public, private, charter, and tribal), colleges and universities, and public libraries in the U.S. and Canada.
