Arts Learning: Integration Grant Program

Overview

Arts Learning Grants in the Integration Category are designed to enrich the school-day curriculum for Pre-K through Grade 12. They provide funding for sequential arts learning experiences that weave ideas and concepts across arts and non-arts disciplines.

Integration grant requests, which may range between $5,000-$10,000, also require:

  • a 50% minimum cash match: $2,500-$5,000 
  • a total project minimum of: $7,500-$15,000 (including match)

Eligibility

Applicants may be from the following types of organizations:

  • Pre-K through Grade 12 schools and affiliated parent organizations
  • 501(c)(3) arts organizations seeking to provide programs directly supporting Pre-K through Grade 12 school-day curriculum through arts integration

Please note: Regional Service Organizations are not eligible for these types of grants.  

Projects engaging a teaching artist(s) must engage at least one teaching artist from COA's Directory of Teaching Artists in the “Integrating” category. Successful projects in this category will likely include professional development.

If you meet the criteria above, you may want to explore other funding opportunities, including applying for an Access Grant.
