The Bazaarvoice Foundation makes grants to selected organizations and programs that help to foster a new generation of highly-educated entrepreneurial youth who will become our most innovative business and community leaders. We primarily support initiatives that serve low-income elementary-, middle-, and high-school students.
As of January 2015, we are not accepting new grant applications as we are solely focused on building our signature program, Student Inc. Our giving will be focused on developing this initiative so that it may grow to serve all of Austin Independent School District (AISD) and other school districts
Student Inc is fortifying Austin's pipeline of innovative leaders by building the nation's first entrepreneurial public education model that spans grades PreK-12. The program was piloted in partnership with AISD's Crockett Vertical schools during the 15-16 school year and expanded to the Eastside Memorial Vertical in 16-17. The model is built to scale to all AISD schools over five years. Additionally, other school districts in the state have already expressed interest in Student Inc. We believe Student Inc will transform public education and we're so proud that it started right here in Austin!
