arts, culture & design in schools grants

Supporting programs that bring the arts to school kids helps expand their horizons and stay on track for a brighter future.


A well-rounded education includes music, art, dance and drama, and allows kids to express themselves creatively. Through grants, we’re helping schools bring more arts and culture into the classroom.


Each Arts, Culture & Design in Schools Grant is $2,000. We accept grant applications between noon CST March 1 and noon CST April 30 each year. Target funds in-school arts programs that enhance students' classroom curricula by bringing the arts and cultural experiences to schools, such as in-school performances, artist-in-residency programs and workshops in schools. Programs must take place between September 2014 and August 2015.
