Education Outreach Grants must directly support education programs for public school children in grades K–12. These may be in-school- or out-of-school-time programs, they may serve students and/or teachers, educators and public school administrators, and may be school- or community-based. The key for eligibility here is the K-12 public school focus.
If your program is education-related but does not directly serve K–12 public school students and educators, you may be eligible for a Community Outreach Grant.
Community Outreach Grants meet our mission and vision of innovative programming, collaboration, and advocacy for lifelong learning. Community Outreach Grants are not required to solely support K-12 public education. Early Childhood, adult learning, basic needs initiatives or community events are a few areas that fall under this category.
With all Outreach Grants, our goal is to support programs, projects, or organizations working in one or more of our LANL Foundation Strategic Focus Areas:
- Community Capacity Building
- College, Career & Community Pathways
- Growing and Supporting Teachers & Educational Leaders
- Social Emotional & Neurosequential Learning
The LANL Foundation’s Outreach 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.
NOTE: There is one application, and your eligibility for consideration under Education or Community Outreach will be determined by your age group(s) served.
All applicants will be notified in April 2021. Grant recipients have one full year to spend the grant money.
