CAMPUS CONSORTIUM IN-KIND GRANT PROGRAM OVERVIEW

It is the mission of the Consortium to help institutions use technology to achieve their strategic plans, modernize the student experience, improve institutional security, and make education more accessible and affordable for the communities served. Campus Consortium grant programs are designed to provide awarded institutions with in-kind solutions and services that are powered by technology partners who have demonstrated a longstanding commitment to serving the needs of campuses and have a track record of successful implementations.

Campus Consortium has partnered with QuickLaunch™ to provide the technology platform and services for the In-Kind Grnat: Manage Digital Identities & Enable Zero Trust Security: Digital Transformation.

*Please note: Campus Consortium In-kind grants are offered only with our specific EdTech vendor/partners. There is no cash award to the institution, Campus Consortium provides underwriting funds that are distributed to the chosen partner on behalf of the institution. Additionally, Campus Consortium In-kind grants do not eliminate the entire cost of the solution, but significantly reduce the cost of software and services. Most Campus Consortium In-kind grants require financial contribution from the awarded institution as a shared cost model to pay for the total cost of ownership of the selected solution.
