Education Grants

There are two grant cycles in 2019, Deadlines are February 15 and August 15 - NOTE: The August deadline has been extended to September 15.

The LANL Foundation’s Education 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.

This category of grants must directly support education programs for public school children in grades K–12 (not restricted to STEM). If your program is education related but does not directly serve K–12 public school students, you may be eligible for a Community Outreach Grant.

Grants of up to $2500 are awarded twice annually. In some cases, larger amounts are given to support sustainability of promising programs (by invitation only). Recipients have one full year to spend the grant money. Each program may receive only one grant per year, and one annual application may be submitted, unless the program is invited to reapply with further clarification.

Grants Available by School District

The number of education grants given to each public school district in our service area is now based on the size of the district. If your school receives a grant, please notify your business office, so others may know how many are still available to your district. Or, before applying, check with Susanne Miller to see if grants are still available.
