About the Project
The Balkhi Foundation Technology Training Grant is open to any Florida K-12 students who need financial assistance to attend a technology based training program, internship, or workshop.
Rather than provide foundational skills, the Technology Training Grant is designed to elevate the individual victories of self taught inventors, programmers, designers, and engineers by providing them a vehicle to attain marketable skills and training to shine within their area of interest. Awardees of the grant can apply for $200 – $500 in funds to be used to defray the cost of transportation and attendance to a technology program, internship, or workshop.
Example programs include
- Girls Who Code Immersion Program
- Code Fever Youth Training
- FIRST in Florida Competitions
- Tech Sassy Girlz Summer Programs
- Black Girls Code Events
- CyberPatriot Competitions
- CSforALL projects and events
