Apply for Verizon Innovative Learning Schools

Millions of students nationwide lack the access to technology and the skills they need to succeed in the digital world. Since 2012, Verizon has been working to help solve this problem through a transformative program called Verizon Innovative Learning.

We now offer two programs for schools and districts with demonstrated need. Our Verizon Innovative Learning Schools Comprehensive model provides devices with data plans so students have access both in and outside of school. These schools also receive financial and professional learning support for a full-time coach focused on helping teachers design and deliver hands-on learning experiences so under-resourced students can have access to the education they deserve. Our Verizon Innovative Learning Schools Connect model provides mobile hotspots with data access for students with demonstrated need, professional development for teachers, and opportunities for collaboration with other educators. These schools must have existing 1:1 device programs.

Learn more about each program below:
