Grants to Maryland nonprofit organizations and government entities, including schools and libraries, to enrich education through artistic programs in eligible locations. Funding is intended for activities that include music, dance, music, performance, and literary programming. Eligible programs benefit the residents of Queen Anne’s County. There are two categories of AiE applications: (1) visiting artist/artist-in-residence and (2) visiting performer.

Schools are eligible for grants to reduce the cost of visiting performer programs involving Maryland-based artists, including travel. Usually, a school may qualify for no more than one such grant in a given school year.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To receive AiE funds from the Arts Council, an organization must either be designated as not-for-profit and tax-exempt by the IRS and incorporated in Maryland, or be a government-related organization such as a school, library, or parks and recreation department.

- Arts Council funds may not be used for “party art” (such as magicians, face painting, hair braiding, balloon sculpture), or for food, capital improvement purchases, or fund-raising.
- Arts-in-Education funds may not be used to fund parts of the regular school curriculum—which MSAC interprets to include student afterschool musical theater and dramatic productions.

Pre-Application Information:

Grant applications must be received by May 1. Awards are made in September of each year.

A school or organization may submit just one application in each category, but an application in either category may and often does include multiple events. Also, it is desirable that participating artists are listed in the Arts-in-Education Visiting Performers Roster of the Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC).

Grants by the Arts Council are matched on at least a one-for-one basis in cash. Funds from the State of Maryland, or in-kind services, are not allowed as part of this match.
