LEF’s 2016-2017 Grant Application Deadline April 4, 2016

Lafayette Education Foundation’s 2016-2017 Grant Cycle is now open! Teachers and administrators in all Lafayette Parish public schools are eligible to apply for Classroom Grants and School Impact Grants. Classroom Grants impact a single classroom and have a maximum award of $1,000. School Impact Grants can impact a grade, subject or curriculum level, or an entire school and have a maximum award of $5,000. Grants are awarded based upon academic value and measurability of success and impact.

LEF grants offer educators the opportunity to enhance the learning experience, facing the challenges of today’s classroom with adequate resources. The majority of grants are written for projects that span the entire year and often the materials can be used for consecutive years. The LEF grant process is an extremely effective method of putting academic dollars straight into the classroom, having a direct impact on student productivity and success.

The application includes specific guidelines and requirements for the LEF Grant Cycle. The deadline to apply for an LEF Grant is  April 4, 2016.  LEF has moved to an online application through Google Forms, which can be found on the LEF website at  www.lefoundation.org . For more information regarding the application process, and to find out about upcoming grant workshops, contact LEF Programs Director, Etienna Wright at (337) 234-3229.
