For more than 30 years, the Junior League of Las Vegas has funded education grants benefiting students in classrooms throughout the Las Vegas valley. We are honored to help teachers bring to life creative, innovative and essential projects that support classroom curriculum. In alignment with Junior League’s focus area of impacting youth ages 12 and over, middle and high school teachers can earn up to $1,500 and elementary teachers can earn up to $1,000. Over the years, our Education Grants committee has granted more than $500,000 and enhanced the classroom experience for thousands of Las Vegas students.
Some examples of creative classroom projects awarded grants in the past include student forensics kits, robotics lab equipment and even ukeleles for a classroom ukelele band!
This past year, 24 new teachers were selected to receive more than $25,000 in grant funding for their exciting classroom projects or initiatives. Stay tuned for more info on the projects selected!
JLLV also distributes other various grants and scholarships in conjunction with local partnerships. See more on our most recent grants and scholarships here:
