Our work is made possible by the dedication and collaboration of our supportive and generous community and corporate partners.
Los Alamos National Laboratory & LANS
The LANL Foundation was born from the recognition that Los Alamos National Laboratory and Northern New Mexico communities are interdependent. Since 1997, the Foundation has provided a way to give back to the communities surrounding Los Alamos.
The Lab and LANL Foundation have a shared vision to empower an educated, skilled local workforce, while also creating a pipeline of employment to the Lab and other local businesses and industries. This partnership has enabled the LANL Foundation to pursue innovations in learning and pave the way for students in Northern New Mexico to meet their full potential.
The Scholarship program was created by a group of mindful Lab employees who actively support local youth and workforce development. The program is still funded primarily by the Lab workforce. The Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship Fund has awarded an impressive $5.5 million to more than 1,100 students from communities surrounding the Lab.
Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) is a private company formed by the University of California, Bechtel, BWXT Government Group, Inc., and URS, an AECOM company. LANS has managed and operated the Los Alamos National Laboratory since June 1, 2006.
Each year, LANS has offered a matching employee donation of $250,000 to the Scholarship Fund as part of its commitment to the community. LANLS also provided initial funding for ISEC, which has strengthened STEM learning and teacher professional development.
Scholarship Advisory Committee
Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship fund is governed by an Advisory Committee of donors who are Laboratory and contract employees and retirees selected by other donors.
The committee meets monthly to carry out the goals and objectives of the fund and works year round to ensure a quality scholarship program.
