Just in time for the ho-ho-holidays: Introducing SAM

Low/no-match School Arts Materials Grants debut Jan. 2

Application deadline: Friday, Feb. 14, 2020

The South Carolina Arts Commission is in the giving spirit, and the state’s arts teachers will benefit to the tune of up to $7,500 in one-time money for materials, supplies, and equipment needed to provide quality arts education.

Announcing School Arts Materials (SAM) grants, a new (but limited-time!) grant offering from the S.C. Arts Commission available to K-12 public, private, or charter schools in South Carolina.

What’s even better? A low, 1:3 match requirement… schools only need to match each dollar of their award with 33¢. Does your public school qualify (qualify, even if you do not receive) Title I funding? There is NO match requirement for you! Priority might be given to certain schools. See the grant guidelines for additional information.

This grant will fund projects occurring between Jan. 2-May 1, 2020 (meaning, your project MUST be completed by May 1, 2020). The application will go live Jan. 2, 2020 and remain open through Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Keep the holiday spirit into next spring with a new SAM Grant from the S.C. Arts Commission. Don’t miss out!
