On July 1, 2021, Osmo for Schools, in partnership with Osmo’s charitable branch, Osmo Cares will begin accepting applications for its first-ever mini-grant consisting of $2000 worth of Osmo for Schools’ educational technology. A total of 20 in-kind, mini-grants will be awarded to U.S. public schools in time for the fall semester. The mini-grant is intended to help schools that lack needed funding to purchase educational technology. Mini-grant recipients, who will be announced on August 9, 2021, will be able to choose from a selection of Osmo for Schools products; only one recipient will be selected per school. Schools must already have appropriate tablets on hand, or a plan to purchase tablets–they are not included.
