Excellence in Education Grants
Excellence in Education Grants are the Foundation's largest grants (maximum award is $10,000 and the minimum is $1,000). These grants fund large-scale projects that will impact multiple classrooms, grades or schools. With an Excellence in Education Grant you can make reality what you've been imagining for your students!
Note: Excellence in Education grants will be awarded at the LPS Community Breakfast in March 2019, and grantees will receive funds in July 2019 for implementation in the the 2019-2020 school year.
Applications are due by January 23, 2019.
Here is a sample of the Google application form. We suggest you read this thoroughly before you start completing the application.
A completed Memo of Intent needs to be signed by your building principal. You will upload this document in your Google form application.
Excellence in Education funds can be used to purchase materials to implement new educational initiatives or used to support before and after school activities.
Consider having your students "write" the grant or drive the process.
Ask your PTA to match Excellence in Education funds granted by the Foundation (double the money!!).
