Assisting Arts Education of K-12 Students in Vanderburgh County
Opportunity Grant Application
Fundable Arts Categories
The following are the arts categories these resources are intended to support: Visual Arts and Crafts, Performing Arts, Media Arts, Literary Arts, Art Appreciation, and Applied Arts and Design.
New Opportunity Grants provide support for Vanderburgh County students, teachers, and organizations that discover needs that arise occasionally without prior notice yet can strengthen arts education in unforeseen ways. A grant may help a student or his or her teacher to: attend a workshop, bring in an artist, buy a piece of equipment, take a fieldtrip, enter a competition, or complete a project—really to engage in just about anything where a little extra money might spell the difference between participating or not.
- The opportunity the grant is meant to serve must be truly occasional, that is, not available annually or planned for over a year in advance.
- Funds are limited and available only on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Students or their parents may not apply for grants themselves but through a faculty member or member of the administration of the school they attend.
- Exceptions for home-schooled students will be made on a case by case basis. A parent will be considered the teacher in such a case and may need to supply more substantial documentation regarding the parents’ and student’s preparation, goals, and needs in seeking to pursue such an opportunity.
- Religious schools, teachers, or administrators may not apply for grants if they support activities limited or available only to a specific religion.
- The same is true for any particular interest group. Activities that improve diversity of outlook will be favored in decision-making.
- Schools may be public, private, charter, or parochial in Vanderburgh County. Home-schooled children must reside in Vanderburgh County.
- Grants generally may not be used to cover transportation costs.
- Awards will generally not be intended to cover the full cost of an activity (some matching or participant-funded support will generally be required).
- Awards for group activities will also generally be made on a per student basis (occasionally up to $100 per student, usually between $25-$50 per student for large groups).
- You will be asked to supply a report upon the project’s completion.
