Lafayette Education Foundation's 2018-2019 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 on academic value, creativity and measurability of success and impact.

LEF grants offer educators the opportunity to enhance the learning experience for their students, 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 application includes specific guidelines and requirements for the LEF Grant Cycle. The deadline to apply for an LEF Grant is April 2, 2018.  LEF has moved to an online application through Google Forms, which can be found on the LEF website at www.lefoundation.org. LEF will hold a Grant Workshop on March 6, 2018, at 5 p.m. at the LEF office conference room. RSVP to programs@lefoundation.org if you would like to attend.  

For more information regarding the application process, and to find out more information about the upcoming grant workshop, contact LEF Programs Director, Jillian Dickerson at (337) 234-3229.
