Education Enrichment Grants
LANL Foundation is pleased to announce its 2021 Education Enrichment Grants cycle, and one significant change to our process: Grants will be awarded at a level of $20,00 per year for two consecutive years, up to $40,000 total over the two-year grant term. This change will allow us and our strategic partners to focus on the meaningful impact of this work in the region.
Through a two-stage application process, LANL Foundation will select 20 recipients to receive $40,000 awards, totaling $800,000 of investment in education across Northern New Mexico over the 2-year grant term. The grant cycle was designed with a focus on equity and access, stemming from the LANL Foundation’s mission, vision, and commitment to listening to the communities it serves, promoting racial and social equity in all its programs and grantmaking. This new grant cycle continues to build on improvements from LANL Foundation's 2020 Education Enrichment cycle, which is grounded in feedback LANL Foundation received from its grantees through a Grantee Perception Survey conducted by the Center for Effective Philanthropy in 2019.
Successful proposals will demonstrate impact in one or more of our 4 Focus Areas:
- College, Career & Community Pathways
- Whole Child Development
- Growing & Supporting Teachers and Educational Leaders
Education Enrichment Grants are open to Schools, Districts, Non-profits and Tribal Communities, and must directly support K12 Public School students, Teachers and Educational Leaders.
