NEW for the 2019-20 school year: wellness grants! Any LAPS staff member can apply!
In support of the Los Alamos Public Schools District’s focus on student and staff wellness, the LAPS Foundation introduces new wellness grants for up to $100 each. Any Los Alamos Public Schools employee may apply, and up to 5 employees may collaborate to request a combined $500 for one project that can be done among employees or with students. Wellness grants should fit into one of the following categories: physical fitness, mindfulness/stress management, morale, creativity/fun or other (please specify).
Wellness grants are not meant to continue funding programs already in place. Preference will be given to proposals that are designed to have a broad staff and/or student impact and not individual or small group activities. There is no deadline to apply, but once the funding has been allocated for the semester, no more will be available until the next semester. $2,000 is available for fall, 2019. More funding will become available in sprint, 2020.
Please submit the application form below. Staff members may only receive one wellness grant per school year.
