Mid-Rivers Communications, telecommunications service provider to 30,000 square miles of Eastern and Central Montana, is proud to announce the availability of up to $50,000 in grants! Educational Technology Grants are offered by Mid-Rivers when funds are available for this purpose from the Mid-Rivers Fund for Education, which is funded by cooperative members’ Unclaimed Capital Credits.

Mid-Rivers recognizes the power of broadband as a solution. Broadband can build bridges between generations, provide access to boundless educational opportunities, strengthen rural economies, and help people stay in their homes longer. This year, grant preference will be given to projects that:

Utilize broadband in innovative ways to address educational and community issues

Seek to educate adults and senior citizens on broadband applications, including how to use technology and the quality of life benefits technology can offer to seniors

Promote student leadership and workforce development skills, especially in fields that will allow students to successfully live and work in our region as adults

Eligible Applicants are accredited educational facilities (including public, private and homeschool) located within the Mid-Rivers service area, and nonprofit entities with an educational mission serving the Mid-Rivers service area.
