Utah Arts & Museums is now accepting online applications for arts education grants for the 2013-14 school year.
The due date for submitting applications is 5 p.m. on March 1.
From the press release:
There are two arts education grants.
The first is for teacher-initiated projects, which provide funding for teachers to gain skills in an artistic discipline of their choice.
The second is for grants to schools and school districts, which offer either an artist-in-residence, which provides schools with funds to bring an artist into a school for 40 hours of instruction, or arts education projects, which provide funds for a comprehensive project using the services of artists or artistic companies.
A notable arts education grantee is Whitehorse High School, where grant funds are used to participate in the Native American Composers Apprenticeship Project (NACAP). NACAP is an outreach program of the Grand Canyon Music Festival and is dedicated to teaching Native American students to compose concert music by having them collaborate with a Native American composer and a string quartet. In 2011, NACAP won a President’s Committee for the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award. Representatives from the President’s Committee attended a 2012 concert at Whitehorse High School, where the string quartet ETHEL of New York City performed the work of Whitehorse High School youth composers.
The grant guidelines can be accessed by visiting artsandmuseums.utah.gov and clicking on "Funding," then "Grants." T
