VFIC / Verizon Foundation
“Teaching with Today’s Technology" Grants
Verizon and the VFIC embarked on a three-year $300,000 partnership designed to enhance the education and skills of VFIC college students heading to careers in teaching K–12.
The grant program, which supported five different VFIC member colleges in each year of the program, is focused on providing VFIC college students with more exposure to the technologies and software available for K–12 teaching, such as Verizon’s notable Thinkfinity program.
Each institution presented a plan to develop or enhance a program that helps to ensure that future K–12 teachers coming out of these colleges are on the cutting edge in using the various technological applications to enhance the learning experience for their future K–12 students.
The Verizon Foundation is one of the our most distinguished corporate partners, contributing more than $3.5 million to the VFIC cause over the course of 58 years. Since 1998, Verizon has commited to improving student learning and faculty instructional effectiveness has made a meaningful impact on colleges across the Commonwealth.
