Competitive Grants

LANL Foundation’s competitive awards provide grant support to schools, school districts, non-profits, and pueblo, nations and tribal communities in the Foundation’s seven-county service area of Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, Sandoval, San Miguel, Santa Fe, and Taos counties and represent a spectrum of projects designed to offer community- and school-based innovative programming, collaboration, and advocacy for lifelong learning as well as education programs and teacher development to support public school children.

Our Competitive Grants respond to, and reflect the needs of, our Northern New Mexico communities to fulfill our vision that all New Mexicans have the skills and confidence they need to be self-sufficient, lifelong learners who are engaged in their community. 

Outreach Grants

Outreach Grants support classroom- and community-based innovative programming, collaboration, and advocacy for lifelong learning–from early childhood to K-12 public education to adult learning and supports working within our strategic focus areas.
