The Echo360 e3 HBCU Tech Grants program will provide resources to advance learning technology innovation and impact at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. New for the 2024 program, grants specifically for eligible HBCU applicants will advance learning technology innovation and impact for historically Black institutions that have been burdened by financial discrimination. In response to systemic underfunding, these HBCU grants have the potential to double in size.


There are two available grant types:

EchoImpact Grants: Join a small group of your peers to support adoption of Echo360 at your institution. Instructors, researchers and central staff interested in improving learner outcomes with Echo360 are encouraged to apply. Winning eligible applications will receive:

  • Up to US $4,000 in cash to support a project of their choice.
  • Full funding to join their peers in a 2 day on-site workshop (inc. flights, meals and accommodation) to discuss the adoption of Echo360 at their institution.


EchoInnovation Grants: providing software solutions to help teachers and trainers develop innovative practices that improve learning engagement. Each winning application will be able to use Echo360’s interactive software up to the value of US $10,000 from the following products: EchoVideo, EchoAuthor, EchoEngage or EchoExam. Please note: for some software options, organizational IT and Administration must provide access for integrations to ensure full access to the platforms are available.
