The 1Million Project launched in 2017 with a mission to help one million students who do not have reliable Internet access at home reach their full potential by giving them mobile devices and free high-speed Internet access. By the 2020-21 school year, we will have a connected a total of 550,000 students in 247 school districts across the country.
We are no longer accepting applications to the 1Million Project. However, we are currently working closely with T-Mobile to help them launch their bigger Project 10Million. This bold initiative builds on the work we’ve been doing over the past three years to help close the digital divide and will reach millions of more students. Once the new program is up and running, we will share more details with all of our partner school districts on how to participate.
Until then, we are committed to working with all of our current school districts to ensure they have the program support needed to distribute the free devices and connectivity to eligible K-12 students, as this work is now more important than ever.
