Intel has launched an Education Accelerator to support developers with daring innovation that will define the next generation of education.

According to Intel, the goal “is to help passionate and committed education, technology, and business professionals who share their dedication to advance educational excellence with mentorship, funding, and insights.”

Companies that are selected will receive up to $100,000 from Intel Capital. Companies will receive $50,000 up front for up to six percent in common stock, and an additional $50,000 in a convertible note at the end of the program.

Those chosen will also have access to a private, dedicated suite with access to all the amenities offered at Silicon Valley accelerator – GSVlabs. These startups also get to meet the education technology decision makers and partners based on Intel Education’s relationships in more than 100 countries.

This program is open to startups globally and applications close 12pm on May 22.
