In an effort to invest in Utah’s future and promote arts learning, the Utah Arts Council (UAC) will once again provide grants for arts education related activities. Arts education grants support arts integration, artistic excellence and professional development for teachers, schools and nonprofit organizations. The deadline to submit grant applications and supporting materials is March 1, 2007.
UAC offers arts education funding in three categories. Artists in Residence Grants support a resident artist in a nonprofit organization or private, parochial, charter or public school. In this setting, the artist integrates his or her work into the creative learning activity of students, schools and communities. Arts Education Project Grants for schools, districts and nonprofit organizations fund larger projects that promote artistic excellence and focus on arts learning and creation. Teacher Initiated Project Grants are available for any teacher in any private, parochial, charter or public school, and focus on professional development and art making for individual teachers.
Grant applications and supporting materials must be received by 5 p.m. at the Utah Arts Council, 617 East South Temple in Salt Lake City or postmarked by the deadline date.
