NewSchools Venture Fund is putting up $1.5 million for special-edtech.
The nonprofit “venture philanthropy” will make grants between $50,000 and $150,000 to for-profit and nonprofit startups developing technology to support K-12 students with learning disabilities.
Previous NewSchools Ignite challenges focused on STEM education and English-language learning. NewSchools’ market research found significant edtech gaps for students with disabilities.
Proposals are due by March 12.
