 Open to all U.S. public schools (K-12) and U.S. public school

 character education programs promoting leadership, voluntarism,
 character education, and school pride. Grants will fund the 
 purchase of resource materials, supplies, teacher training, 
 and equipment that facilitates character education for K-12 
 students.

 Examples of programs that the Sprint Character Education Grant
 Program will fund include character education curriculum and
 character education teacher training, direct project-related
 costs for service-learning programs, and leadership and mentor
 training.

 Public schools may apply for individual school grants of up 
 to $5,000 each; public school districts can apply for district-
 wide grants of up to $25,000 each.
