About Arts Grants for Teachers

A granting program for teachers in Lafayette Parish Public School. The Arts Grants for Teachers program is funded by the Lafayette Parish School System and coordinated by Acadiana Center for the Arts.

The purpose of this grant program is to encourage teachers to design and develop artistically creative and innovative projects involving the visual and performing arts.

These projects can:

  • Develop an understanding and appreciation of the arts
  • Complement other arts-related activities already implemented in the schools
  • Provide direct student involvement in the arts
  • Develop permanent arts resources
  • Integrate the arts into other academic disciplines
  • Provide support for teachers to become more proficient in the arts

Applying for an Arts Grant

  • Individual Grant (one educator): up to $500
  • Shared Grant (two or more educators): up to $1000
  • Arts Expo Project Grant: up to $1500.
    • These grants are awarded to projects that culminate in a performance or exhibit during the Student Arts Expo: May 11-12, 2018. To qualify for these grants, there must be a minimum of three participating teachers and classes.

Applications are reviewed on a competitive basis with two grant rounds per year.
