ITEM: New Deadline for Sprint 1 Million Project
High Schools now have until April 30, 2017 to apply for free devices and wireless service through Sprint 1Million Project<http://setda.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=1f18c643d052d9f509a7060f4&id=4468f8ea88&e=5e425640e4>
Sprint and the Sprint Foundation have committed to help close the homework gap by providing free devices and wireless service to schools to connect 1 million low-income high school students (over a period of 5 years) who don't have home internet access.
The goal of the 1 Million Project <http://setda.us1.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=1f18c643d052d9f509a7060f4&id=348660459e&e=5e425640e4> is to help level the playing field so that disadvantaged high school students will have access to the technology they need to succeed in school, participate in the digital world, and ultimately reach their full potential.
Through this program, eligible high school students will receive:
* 3 GB per month of free high-speed LTE data while on the Sprint Network. Unlimited data is available at 2G speeds if usage exceeds 3 GB in a month
* A free smartphone, tablet, laptop or hotspot device
* Free hotspot capability and unlimited domestic calls/texts while on the Sprint Network for students who receive a smartphone
* Free Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) compliant content filter with every device. This filter blocks adult content and malware while on the Sprint Network. Specifically designed for the 1Million Project. This filter is always on and cannot be disabled
* Eligible high school students will receive free Sprint wireless service for up to four years, depending on their grade level when they start the program
