How to Apply for Education Outreach and Community Outreach Grants

Who Can Apply
LANL Foundation $2,500 Grants are open to school districts, nonprofit New Mexico educational institutions, IRS-qualified 501 (c)(3) organizations, government agencies, and Pueblo/Tribal communities serving Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe, and Taos counties.

Education Outreach Grants directly support education
  programs for public school children in grades K–12
  (not resricted to STEM). See below for district information.
Community Outreach Grants still meet our mission
  and vision but might not be as directly tied to
K–12 public education.

See Grant Elegibility for detailed information.

How to Apply
Grant proposal including the application and supporting documents are submitted through our online form.

Quarterly deadlines are:
February 15, May 15, August 15 & November 15

Before beginning the online application, please view the step-by-step application instructions. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND having your answers prewritten in a separate, saved document to avoid possible loss of information in the event of a problem during online submission.
