Arts Learning Collaboration Grants enhance the work of school-based arts teaching and learning programs through collaborative projects taking place in-school (during regular school hours), after-school, or during summer/inter-session and in-services.

Collaborative projects may engage any number of collaborators, but must involve a minimum of two parties, one of which represents the applicant. For example, collaborations could take place between teachers or departments within a school, between multiple schools within a district, or between a school and a community arts resource (teaching artists or arts organizations).

Collaborative projects can take a variety of forms but must be submitted in one of the following three categories:

  • Planning: Future project planning, curriculum development, evaluation, resource development, etc.
  • Professional Development: Training and learning for certified arts educators, classroom teachers, administration, teacher/artist teams, etc.
  • Student Learning: Sequential, hands-on learning in, through, and/or about the arts.

  • An applicant must be an Arizona school or school district with tax-exempt status.
  • An applicant may submit only one application per cycle, and may receive only one Arts Learning Collaboration Grant per fiscal year.
  • Individual teaching artists or arts organizations may only be listed as collaborators for a maximum of seven (7) Arts Learning Collaboration Grant applications in any given fiscal year.

Eligible project activities must take place between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018. Grant funds cannot be used for any projects, or days of a project, that take place before the start date of the cycle in which they are submitted, and/or after the end of the fiscal year.
