About Our Grant Program

APS is the largest school district in the state, among the largest in the nation, and has been the central source for public education in the Albuquerque community for decades.  APS strives to create excellence in public education and serves every child that walks through the door.

Our grant awards have grown significantly since the Horizons Campaign was launched in 2010. Where we once funded only small grants in STEM, literacy and fine arts, our efforts have grown to include small and large impact grants in various focus areas.  Each year we directly fund the programs and projects developed by the educators of Albuquerque Public Schools.

We hold two grant cycles a year, September and February.
