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

These grants provide educators the opportunity to enhance the learning experience by taking on the challenges of today’s classroom with adequate resources.

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 here.
