Learning Enrichment Grants

The Liberty School District Foundation developed the Learning Enrichment Grant (LEG) program in 1997 as a way to help Liberty educators meet the needs of Liberty students throughout the District.  LPS teachers and certified staff are invited, on an annual basis, to apply for funds that will allow them to develop and implement instructional projects that motivate and challenge students to learn.

  • Grant Writing Tips
    • Refrain from using an excessive amount of jargon.
    • Do not insert links or videos into your grant application - grant reviewers will not use this information as part of the review and selection process.
