Frequently Asked Questions

Why are some of the grants focused on supporting programs for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math?

There is a recognized skills gap in Canada in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). At Best Buy, we believe it's important to help educators provide students with the right tools to keep students inspired, motivated, and empowered to continue their education in these areas. We hope that by focusing grants in these areas, we can encourage schools to engage students in their STEM education.

How will the winners be selected?

The winning applications will be determined by a diverse panel of Best Buy employees. School Tech Grants will be awarded based on the merit of the submission and expressed need. In some cases, Best Buy may call or visit the school (with permission) or contact the school board or district to help determine the final recipients. 

Who should be involved in creating the application?

Applications can be created by one teacher, or by several staff with the support of their students, parents, and/or school board leadership. The most successful applications are generally those developed by a team of stakeholders. The application must be approved by the principal of the school.

Am I only allowed to spend my grant money at Best Buy?

We pride ourselves on having the latest and greatest technology that students need to excel in school and have a dedicated team who can help teachers with their purchases. Our Best Buy for Education team has access to products and devices that are specifically designed for teachers and is happy to assist recipients and make the most of their grants. We do, however, recognize that schools are bound by school district-approved vendors impacting the technology that can be purchased, installed, and serviced in schools; which is why we provide monetary donations.
