Take the pressure off and pay one less bill next school year!
Students in grades K-12 who are enrolled in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) or other government programs, such as Medicaid and Headstart, are automatically eligible for this amazing offer! The free hotspot will be delivered at no charge to their home, and includes a 100GB/year data line. Keep in mind you can purchase additional data passes if needed.
Better yet, eligible households will have free internet for a whopping 5 years! Plus, applying is so easy – it takes just 5 minutes and you can check your eligibility first here.
Here’s how to sign up (and no, you DON’T need to be a T-Mobile customer 🙌🏼):
- Head here to apply as a school administrator or parent/guardian
- Submit your school district’s information OR your child’s school information and proof of NSLP enrollment
- Check your inbox for an acceptant letter and shipping status!
Currently, there are a couple states that have met their maximum capacity this year, including Alaska and Nevada. Other states may reach their allotment soon, so it’s best to sign up as soon as possible!
If your state isn’t open for registration, be sure to check with your student’s school district, as they may already be enrolled in this program.
Note that this program receives A LOT of applications, so those approved for the program may experience shipping delays of approximately 45-60 days.
