The Loudoun Education Foundation (LEF) recently received a $10,000 donation from Interfaith Bridges in support of Multicultural Grants for Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) teachers.
The purpose of these grants is to assist programs supporting multicultural education – targeted primarily towards students – to help them better understand, embrace and celebrate diversity in Loudoun County. In addition, programs also may involve parent, teacher or community educational activities if they are associated with student programming.
Grants range from $500 to $2,500 and are to be used in the 2017-2018 school year. The Multicultural Grant application is on the LEF web site, http://www.loudouneducationfoundation.org/. Grant applications are due Wednesday, October 18th.
LEF also received a $7,700 Tikva Grant from Beth Chaverim Reform Congregation in support of the 2018 Loudoun International Youth Leadership Summit.
The seventh annual Loudoun International Youth Leadership Summit (LIYLS) will be held from April 8 to April 17, 2018.
