Arts in Education Grants
Arts in Education Director
The Arts in Education (AIE) program provides support to schools and nonprofit organizations to strengthen the use of the arts in pre K–12 settings. We give priority to funding fees for professional artists to work in educational settings and collaborations between arts organizations and schools. Arts in Education grants are not intended to substitute for a school’s arts education program.
There are three AIE grant categories:
All applicants should review the General Grant Information in advance of writing the grant. Additionally, applicants are encouraged to contact the Arts in Education Director in the planning process to discuss their projects and make their application as competitive as possible.
Teachers in schools that receive AIE grants will be given priority registration and priority application for scholarships for professional development opportunities offered through our AIE Partnerships program. These opportunities include: the Arts Integration Institute, the International Educator Workshop and N.C. Wolf Trap.
