What is AIE?

An Artists in Education (AIE) grant places professional teaching artists in your classroom for a long-term (20-day minimum) residency. Residencies are customized for any grade level or arts discipline (performing, visual, literary). AIE grants provide professional development for your administration and staff, a culminating event to engage the school and its community, and a reflection day for students to reflect on their achievements.

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

  • Access programming in value of $11,000+ 
  • 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
  • Incorporate Social Emotional Learning (SEL) into your curriculum

Please contact the AIE Manager, Michael Roberson Reid, at (609) 243-9000 ext. 219 for more information about the next application cycle.
