Educators: are you finalizing your AEP (Arts Education Project) Grant applications?
The deadline is Tuesday, Jan. 16.
UPDATE: The deadline is extended to Monday, Jan. 22.
AEP Grants support well-developed arts education programs and projects in both traditional arts education settings (schools, arts organizations) and other organizations that use the arts to advance learning (social service, health, community, education or other organizations). Funded projects and programs can take place in school, after school or over the summer. Grants of up to $15,000 are available (grantees must match their grant 1:1).
An AEP Grant would support such programs as:
- After-school classes
- Artist residencies
- Public art projects
- Acquisition of critical equipment or supplies
- Program planning
- Professional development for instructors, artists and/or administrators
And others, as the list is not exhaustive. Most S.C. schools, nonprofit organizations (arts and non-arts), colleges and universities, and units of government are eligible to apply. Go here to learn more and apply.
