Arts teachers! Grants available for supplies and professional development!

We know that arts teachers have varied backgrounds and may need additional resources to teach lessons that meet the 2010 S.C. Visual, Performing and Media Arts standards. Teacher Standards Implementation grants are here to help!

TSI grants award up to $750 and are designed to help arts teachers acquire the supplies, materials and expertise necessary for meeting the standards. TSI funds may be used to pay for consumable and non-consumable resources and teacher professional development. Applicants must be public, private, charter or parochial schools in S.C., and more than one teacher from a school may apply.

Deadlines are quarterly (Aug. 15, Nov. 15, Feb. 15 and May 15) so you can apply before, during or after each school year.

Visit the South Carolina Arts Commission’s website for eligibility details and application information. Your county coordinator at the Arts Commission is available to help you and may be reached by e-mail or at (803) 734-8696.
