Product Grant Program

We donate NI products to educators and innovators who are addressing the world’s most pressing social and environmental challenges.   

Classroom Grants

NI is committed to diversifying the engineering talent pipeline and supporting aspiring engineers. Our Product Grant program provides higher educational institutions with NI’s test and measurement software and training, enabling them to bring engineering concepts to life for students. We give priority to universities serving underrepresented or economically disadvantaged students. 


By using the same powerful, industry-leading tools engineers and scientists use, students will gain hands-on experience they’ll need to compete in the workforce.
