Teachers, mark your calendars! The Spring, 2019 applications for Great Ideas, Professional Development and Professional Book Group grants will be accepted February 1 – March 3, 2019. Certified Los Alamos Public Schools teachers may apply. At least $15,000 is available in total for these grants this spring! Learn more about the grants and apply online.

Attend one of our Grant Workshops to learn what makes for a successful application, and then have a chance to start your application with help from our executive director and board members. There are 2 workshops. The content is the same for both. There is no need to RSVP, you can just show up. Bring your laptop if you wish to work on your application.

This school year we have started offering mini grants! Ten grants (up to $100 each) are available each semester. These grants are intended to allow teachers to quickly implement new ideas in their classrooms. Certified Los Alamos Public Schools teachers may apply. Priority will be given to requests that fit within the LAPS Foundation’s strategic plan. Mini grant applications are now being accepted and there is no deadline to apply, but once the 10 have been allotted for the semester, no more will be available until the next semester. Learn more and apply for a mini grant.
