ArtsAVL has opened applications for its Arts for Schools Grant. The grants, which range from $500 to $2,000, will be awarded to nonprofit organizations and teaching artists who are providing arts-centered programs — performances, workshops, residencies, and field trips — to K-12 public school students.

Last year, the grants were awarded to schools, but this year, applications are open to any 501c3 nonprofit arts organization or qualified teaching artist in Buncombe County. Proposals that serve economically disadvantaged schools are ArtsAVL’s top priority, followed by proposals for multicultural programs.

The deadline to apply is August 14, and grant recipients will be announced in late September. Check out the applicant requirements, and start your application now.
