The Indiana Arts Commission is now accepting applications for the next round of Arts IN Education grants.
New for this year will be the inclusion of teaching artists as well as schools as
potential applicants. The Arts IN Education grant program had previously been only open to any Indiana pre-kindergarten through 12th grade public, private, parochial, or charter school.
Eligible teaching artists must be 18 years-of-age or older, must have been a resident of Indiana for one year prior to the date of application, and remain a resident of Indiana during the grant period. The teaching artist must not be enrolled in any degree-granting program (undergraduate, graduate and doctorate) as of October 11, 2012. A teaching artist 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).
Applicants may request up to $3,000 for project related costs. Applicants must match dollar for dollar the IAC grant awarded with school funds, contributed funds, in-kind donations, or services. Funding may not replace or supplant existing resources.
Arts IN Education grant information and guidelines are currently available online. Interested applicants should refer to the IAC website for more information.
Questions should be directed to Susan Britsch, 317-232-1281 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All applications must be submitted through the Indiana Cultural Grants Online no later than October 11, 2012. Projects must take place between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013.
