Offering grants to support the creativity of inspiring educators was one of the first programs established by the Foundation. We have proudly awarded more than 500 classroom and educator grants, ranging from a few hundred dollars up to $10,000. Our educators use these funds to further enhance academic and personal success for Liberty students. From a sensory stimulation project for Special Education students to an outdoor classroom for an entire school, our grants are allowing students, regardless of their background, to have opportunities to experience personalized and premier learning.
New Elementary Teacher Grant
First year elementary teachers are invited to apply for our New Elementary Teacher Grant. The lucky grantee will receive up to $1,000 to make their first classroom as welcoming and as organized as they dream!
Learning enrichment grants
LPS Staff may request up to $500 to fund projects that support one or more of the following learning areas: Literacy, Fine Arts, STEM, Character Education, College & Career, Real-World Experience or Special Education.
Excellence in education grants
On an annual basis, LPS staff may request up to $10,000 to fund large-scale projects that will impact multiple classrooms, grades, or schools.
Learner Led Grants
Fueling the ideas and dreams of our learners is one of the best ways to promote lifelong learning and innovation in the classroom. For this reason, we have introduced student-initiated grant opportunities. All students will be encouraged to recruit a staff ambassador as they collaborate with their peers to develop unique projects for their classrooms or schools. Groups will put together creative video proposals for this fun competition.
