I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you purchase through a Cisco Gold partner you might receive a good discount.

I do believe they have though the "dollars" is never explicit in public. But they have this sharing on "Education Procurement: Contracts, Grants, and Cisco Capital Financing"

It is best in engaging the local sales, they will be more than willing to help as MNC. Quick catch on their CSR involvement in education areas such as the "Investing in Education Innovators", and "Global and Regional Education Initiatives"

They also have dedicated Cisco page for education scope.

 It has "Cisco® Education Enabled Development (CEED) platform under its Inclusive Growth initiative" e.g. MOU is signed btw Indian govt and Cisco
