Resources for LPS Students

Student Resources

At the Foundation, we work to ensure that students never have to settle because they don’t have the funds or access they need to grow. From providing emergency support to scholarships, we offer a spectrum of resources for students.
 

  • We raise funds to support strong, stable families. Families can request support by contacting the social worker at their child's school. We provide expedited, emergency support in the form of funds for rent, car repairs, medicine, eyewear, etc.

  • From study abroad to school projects, the Foundation has funds for students to dream big. Funds can be requested for individual, group or faculty-advised projects.

  • Students can encourage educators to create campaigns to crowdsource funds for special classroom projects like field trips, specialized equipment, etc.

  • We work with LPS to help cover fees so that all students have the ability to participate in extracurricular activities. Details on the LPS fee waiver program (pg .17-21) and the form (pg. 57) are located in the LPS Important Information Booklet linked above. Additionally the Foundation provides funds for items not covered in the LPS fee waiver program. Please note, students must have a LPS staff member apply on their behalf for Foundation Student Assistance Funds.

  • The Foundation for LPS can cover the cost of driver’s education classes for students in need.

  • If you would like to take AP or Dual Credit Classes but your family cannot afford the fee at this time please reach out to your principal. Each school has a Fund for Excellence that can be used at their discretion for requests such as this.

  • The Foundations funds unique experiences that are focused on their interests to help hone students’ technical skills. These partnerships with Southeast Community College, The Bay, UNL, Bryan Health, and more give students a head start on their career through dual credit, and challenge them to think bigger.

  • Volunteering for the Foundation is easy, flexible, and, most of all, counts toward your GoPo Hours.

  • We offer scholarships for graduating LPS seniors. The application process is fast and streamlined–apply for 90+ Foundation scholarships with one form.

  • Recently graduated? We offer alumni services like our reunion calendar and feature stories about alumni through our website.
