How to Apply?

Once your school has formed a Steering Committee and reviewed the AIE Guidelines, complete your AIE application and submit via the online portal.

The 2023 - 2024 applications are now open!  Applications are due by March 3, 2023 at 5pm. Award announcements will be made in June 2023, pending funding by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

Schools that score in the upper tier of the panel review may be contacted for an interview prior to the final decision. Schools are notified of the panel’s decision in mid-June 2023.
