LRSEF is continuing the School Equipment Grant Program (School Grant Program) for the 2022-2023 school year. The School Grant Program is funded by LRSEF’s Amazon Innovation Grant.
LRSEF is committed to increasing the science fair participation of under-represented minority (URM)* and low-income** students. To boost URM-science-fair participation, LRSEF is awarding several $800 school grants; these grants are to purchase science fair supplies and equipment. The equipment purchased from the School Grant Program must be used for student research by URM and low-income students with the goal of having your students present at LRSEF.
