Funding Options

zSpace is eligible for many federal, state, and local funding sources. These sources could be providing funding for curriculum, technology, professional development, infrastructure, STEM, after school programs and/or CTE which could all apply to zSpace implementations. We also find that customers often split the costs between multiple funding sources. To learn specifics about how zSpace learning solutions meet the requirements of these funding sources, contact us.

Local Funds

Many schools have used local or existing funds to purchase zSpace. These include:

  • School bonds
  • Technology funds
  • District foundations
  • Parent organizations
  • Library budgets

These local funds are often associated with new construction, innovation, STEM equipment, facility or infrastructure/technology upgrades. zSpace brings to the district both a local and global differentiator, enabling the district and community to stand out in the use of education technology and innovation. If a formal proposal is required, we can work with you.

Federal Funds

zSpace is eligible to be funded through several federal funding sources including Title I, Title II, Perkins and e-rate rebates.

The Every Student Succeeds Act:
The Every Student Succeeds Act is meant to provide an opportunity for every student to meet the standards set in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. This Act provides funding for schools which are not performing to this standard.
Title I:
Title I provides financial assistance to local educational agencies and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. Every year $14 billion in Title I funds are distributed to schools across the country. Schools with 40% or more of children in poverty can allocate title I funding through a schoolwide program.
Title II:
Some districts have also used Title II funds as the zSpace can be used for teacher preparation and training in STEAM subjects as well as innovative teaching techniques.
Perkins Career and Technical Education Act:
Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act funding has been used by many districts to purchase zSpace that focus on the academic and technical achievement of CTE students, particularly in Health Careers. The current funding mission mentions specifically simulation of real work environments, which aligns to the zSpace learning experience.
E-rate Rebate:
Federal e-rate Universal Service Fund e-rate BEAR (Billed Entity Applicant Reimbursement) rebates are another possible avenue for zSpace funding as the rebates are not limited to infrastructure and can be spent on anything approved by the e-rate coordinator. A district should check with their e-rate coordinator for possible leverage of e-rate rebates.
Investing in Education Fund:
The Investing in Education Fund provides competitive grants for schools which show an improvement in student performance. These grants are meant to allow for schools to discover what best encourages student success.

Federal Grants

Federal grant programs include:

The application process can be demanding and requires a great deal of detailed information. If you are planning to apply for a grant, we can guide you through the process, provide zSpace specific information and suggest how to submit the most competitive application possible.
