L.E.A.D.S. Grants are designed to help educators who promote initiatives to help students Learn, Experience, Advocate, Dream and Serve.
The Leaders Education Foundation recognizes an opportunity for students to learn and interact in new ways and for new dreams and ideas to emerge. Leaders Education Foundation champions these ideas and dreams through our L.E.A.D.S. Educator Grants.
Educators throughout West Tennessee have the opportunity to win grant funding for their classroom or school-wide project or initiative. Leaders Education Foundation Board of Directors has set aside $20,000 in grant funding to be distributed in 2022.
Whether it’s a new set of books, a new STEM or STEAM initiative, a school-wide project, a new virtual learning experience, or other exciting educational opportunities, we are here to help champion these initiatives.
Any educator or school-based professional is invited to apply. This includes Pre-K centers, public and private K-12 schools, Technical Schools, Universities and Colleges in West Tennessee.
