LANL Foundation no longer supports Educational Outreach grants.
The Educational Outreach program is designed to support nonprofit educational institutions, IRS-qualified 501 (c)(3) organizations, government agencies, and Pueblo/Tribal communities addressing critical public education needs in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), including STEM activities in the areas of teacher professional development, curriculum enhancement, educational technology, and student support.
Educational Outreach funds are competitive, and the Foundation will provide program support funding ranging from $5,000 to $15,000.
In 2010, twelve organizations received new, one-year Educational Outreach grants totaling $157,100 to support STEM education projects in Northern New Mexico. In addition, $200,000 was allocated to organizations who received multi-year awards in previous years. Multi-year grants were discontinued in 2010.
In 2011, the Foundation has allocated a total of $140,000 for new, one-year STEM Educational Outreach grants. Due to declining resources and the Foundation’s donor restrictions the Educational Outreach program is expected to be discontinued in 2013.
