School Residency Grants

The School Residency grant is intended to support artist residencies in schools. A residency is an interactive arts activity involving K-12 students, teachers, and artists. Residencies provide young people with a direct arts experience with artists, as well as encourage the artist’s professional development by providing a unique employment experience and audience contact. Residencies must be based upon a well-defined educational experience that is at least one full day or up to five school days in length, and culminate in a capstone event showcasing the students that is accessible and open to the public.

  • $3,000 School Residency grants are available for the school year 2022-23.
  • Matching funds are never required for School Residency grants.
  • Recipients of School Residency grants are eligible to reapply annually.
  • The submission deadline is thirty days prior to the planned artist residency.
