SansGUI Educational Grant Program

Thank you for your interest in our SansGUI Educational Grant Program.  We offer free SansGUI software and licenses to non-profit, degree-granting educational institutions and exceptional high schools through course adoptions or special projects.  If you would like to investigate the feasibility of using SansGUI in your educational curricula, you can download the software and try it out first before applying for the grant.  You can also obtain a slide show, titled "Using SansGUI in Academia: Raising Software Standards in Higher Scientific and Engineering Education", from the links below:

The SansGUI Educational Grant Program consists of the following categories:

  • Course Adoptions: for instructors who will use SansGUI as a tool to teach scientific or engineering simulations or to develop simulation programs in their courses. [Apply for Course Adoption Grant on-line]
  • Special Projects: for full-time faculty members who will use SansGUI as a tool to develop scientific or engineering simulation applications in educational research projects.


Course Adoptions
