FY21 Arts in Education Grant and Teaching Artist Roster Applications are open! More information available here.

The Arts in Education Grant

The Arts in Education Grant is a granting program of the Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC) that provides matching funds to eligible Maryland-based nonprofit organizations and government entities to support educational engagements led by Teaching Artists on MSAC’s Teaching Artist Roster. The Arts in Education Grant and the Teaching Artist Roster work together to accomplish the Arts in Education program’s mission.

Visit the MSAC website for application guidelines and requirements

Applications open May 15, 2020 for the FY21 (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021) grant period. Funded activities must occur within the grant period. Teaching Artists should allow 90-days to receive payment upon application approval. Applications are reviewed on a monthly basis.

The Teaching Artist Roster

The Arts in Education program supports Teaching Artists and the elevation of their careers through the Teaching Artist Roster. MSAC believes Teaching Artists are integral to the arts education ecosystem in providing supplementary arts education experiences that deepen learning.
