Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $1,000 to Rhode Island public and charter school K-12 teachers, artists, and nonprofit organizations for arts education projects that benefit public school children. Funding is intended for projects that incorporate the arts into the basic academic curriculum.

Successful Arts in Academics projects create collaborations among artists and educators and promote the arts as an integral part of the learning process. 

Potential projects might include:

  • Collaboration between artist and educator: An architect and a math teacher help students learn about scale by reading and using rulers when building a scale model.
  • Field trips: Students take a trip to the zoo to study symmetrical patterns as they relate to mathematics. Trips must serve an academic need.
  • Professional training: A teacher attends a workshop or other course in critical/creative problem-solving to expand arts literacy skills and incorporate its principles into other core academic areas.

Grants may be used for stipends, materials, equipment, honorariums, and other costs associated with implementing the project. (Funds may only be used to support performances or exhibitions that are the result of the grant project.) Applicants are encouraged to include administrative costs in the proposal budget.
