What is AIE?

AIE grants place professional teaching artists in classrooms for residencies that can be offered in all arts disciplines and at all grade levels.  AIE grants also make it possible to offer professional development for your administration and staff, a support component (an assembly, field trip or visiting artist) to provide connection and reinforce the purpose of your project and a culminating event so your families and surrounding community can share in your accomplishments.

The Artist in Education Residency Grant Program is a great opportunity for schools to:

  • Access up to $10,000 for long term school arts residencies
  • Impact curriculum
  • Expand the arts experiences of students and teachers
  • Provide effective professional development in the arts
  • Create long-term impact on your school and community through the arts.
