Funding Computer Science
Microsoft designated $2 million to the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) in July 2018. With the emphasis on Computer Science, look for more funders to follow this investment.
CTSA is dedicated to supporting K-12 computer science education. Microsoft Philanthropies believes this financial commitment shows a means to support teachers in computer science similar to what happens with associations like literacy, mathematics, and other subject areas.
