The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on Monday announced a $20 million grant program to improve college graduation rates via technology, which will probably be oriented around online education and learning programs. Next year, the focus will be expanded to K-12 programs, Bill Gates, the chairman of Microsoft and the co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, said in a conference call. The initiative, first disclosed last week, will be known as the Next-Generation Learning Challenges, a $20 million “funding round” that will be handed out in grants ranging from $250,000 to $750,000.
