Funding for Education

Take Control of Your Budget

Education often only has enough funding to cover the essentials for their school. ScholarBuys offers different funding options for education so schools can take control of their budget and increase purchasing power to put better technology in their students’ and teachers’ hands.

Budget

Through funding with ScholarBuys, improve your institution’s budget. We will help you navigate the different options available to you that best fit your technology project and goals. Funding options include leasing, grant writing, or renting certain technology. Our team works exclusively with education so we can expertly advise you on which may be the best solution based on the type of technology and your institution’s current budget.

Empower

Get more technology in the hands of your students and teachers faster! By expanding your budget, you allow your students to have access to technology they may not have been able to afford. This technology empowers your institution to teach students more and give them better opportunities for their future. You also empower teachers to have more options for their lessons and have better access to classroom management tools. Beyond the classroom, IT staff may be empowered to better protect against security threats or manage the network.

Strategize

With  more funding, your institution can think more strategically about the goals for technology. Maybe your school wants to better protect against security threats, allow professors to share presentations more easily on a professional technology platform, or you have a K-12 classroom that wants to go 1:1. With more purchasing power, you may be able to achieve these technology goals sooner. Tell the ScholarBuys team about your project and goals and we can help you find the best solution.

Buy Now, Pay Later: The Budget Solution

  • Choose to pay in monthly, quarterly, or annual options
  • Minimum dollar amount for a lease is $10,000 and the maximum is $250,000
  • All hardware, services, and software can be on one payment

Fair Market Value (FMV) Lease

$

A Fair Market Value Lease gives you the ability to purchase the product at any time at fair market value. This is a good option if you want to test out the technology and basically rent it before you purchase. You can stop leasing and return the equipment at any time, continue leasing, or purchase it at fair market value. This option offers lower monthly payments than loans for lease-to-own financing.

Dollar Buyout Purchase Option

$

With a $1 Buyout Purchase Option you own the equipment after your finance term is up. Once the leasing period is over, you buy out the equipment for $1. This is the best option if you are sure you would like to own the equipment and use it for a long time after the finance term, but want to pay for it in increments. If you want to keep your technology updated and get new products every few years, this is not the option for you.

Grant Writing can be a daunting task. Let ScholarBuys help you navigate your way through the writing and proposal process.

Is your school looking to test a new model of Chromebook or trying to go 1:1? Consider renting Chromebooks!

  • Rent Chromebooks starting at $12/month for a 4 GB model
  • Minimum number of devices is 20
  • Minimum number of months is 12
  • Price will vary depending on model and brand

Once your Chromebook rental period has ended, you can rent on a month to month basis and end at any time.

Why Rent Chromebooks?

  • If you’d like the newest model of Chromebook each year
  • You are new to Chromebooks and would like to test them out
  • If you would like to test out a model of a Chromebook before committing to purchasing them
  • Your school is on a very limited budget and is not ready to commit to a purchase
