Epic Mega Grants for Middle and High School?

In the FAQ is says,

Please note that for institutions, we only accept submissions from degree-granting schools and educators at such schools.

Does this include middle and high schools? I’ve been successfully teaching Game Dev with UE4 to 7th and 8th grade and am interested in further developing my curriculum.

If in fact middle and high schools are excluded from the program, why?

Thanks for your interest in the MegaGrants program. We don’t view this portion of the FAQ from prohibiting school teachers from applying.
