OK, here is a site to a foundation who is giving away $400 million of Toshiba computer equipment over the next 2 years. they are splitting it up so that half the states apply and get theirs in 2003 and then in 2004, the other half.
the states for 2003 are: (you must apply before March 31st 2003)Alabama, Alaska, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wyoming
for 2004: (you cannot apply until January 2004)Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Wisconsin
I called them to try to find out the financial criteria but they don't give it out. they just say they look at all the factors for each person and go from there. It's worth checking out.
