Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $500 to $1,000 to any K-12 public or charter school teachers, artists, and nonprofit organizations, as long as the project benefits Rhode Island public school children. Funding is intended for educational projects that incorporate the arts into the basic academic curriculum. Funded activities should successfully create collaborations among artists and educators and promote the arts as an integral part of the learning process. Funding is not intended to support performances where students are passive participants.

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 may not be for entertainment purposes, but 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.

Proposals will be reviewed using the following criteria:

- Level of arts integration into core academic subject matter
- Innovativeness, creativeness and practicality of the project
- Educational merit and academic excellence
- Group size and impact on participating children and school
- Access to other funding sources

Grant amounts range from $500 to $1,000.

The project described in the proposal should take place between January and June of the year following the award.

Any K-12 public or charter school teacher, artist, or nonprofit organization is eligible to apply as long as the proposed project benefits Rhode Island public school children.

Eligible Use of Funds:

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.)
