From Arts:92: Teaching Artists to be Eligible for Arts IN Education Grants

The Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) announced earlier this month that for the first time teaching artists will be eligible to apply for the IAC's Arts IN Education grants. Eligible teaching artists must be 18 years of age or older. They must have been an Indiana resident for one year prior to the date of application, and must remain an Indiana resident during the grant period.

Eligible teaching artists may not be enrolled in any degree-granting program (undergraduate, graduate and doctorate) as of October 11th, 2012. Teaching artists may not apply as part of a collaboration for which another artist is also applying in the same year, and may not apply on behalf of an organization. Organizations, other than schools, may not apply.

As in years past, applicants may request up to $3,000 for their project. Grant awards must be matched, dollar for dollar with the IAC grant awarded with school funds, contributed funds, in-kind donations, or services. Funding may not replace or supplant existing resources.

Funded projects must take place during the scheduled school day and may not fund after-school or summer activities. Projects must also meet a minimum of five (5) Indiana academic standards (from three required last year).

Applications will open in mid August with an application deadline of October 11, 2012. 

Arts IN Education grant information and guidelines will be available online in mid-August. Interested applicants should then refer to the IAC website Arts IN Education page.

If there are additional questions, please email Susan Britsch or call 317-232-1281.
