 Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries 
Application for Funds

The Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries provides funds to our Nation’s neediest schools so that they can extend, update, and diversify the book and print collections in their libraries with the goal of encouraging students to develop a love of reading and learning.

In order to be eligible, a paid professional must be designated by the school administration as responsible for the collection, care, and use of the materials housed in the school library. The grant award may be used only for books, periodicals, eBooks, reference materials, and magazine/newspaper subscriptions. More than one school in a district/diocese/CMO may apply for the grant, however, each school must submit their own application.

Please provide as much information as possible. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about this application. Please contact us at laurabushfoundation@bushcenter.org

All applications must be submitted by 11:59 P.M. CST on Friday, December 31, 2021.
