Sprint and the Sprint Foundation have launched the 1Million Project, a multiyear initiative to offer freemobile devices and freehigh-speed wireless internet connectivity to 1 million low-income high school students lacking a reliable source of internet access at home.

Sprint is now accepting applications for the second year of the 1Million Project, which starts at the beginning of the 2018 - 2019 school year and runs for four years. High schools and school districts can earn a spot in the program by applying online.
