Arts Grants for Teachers

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 help to develop 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 arts into other academic disciplines or provide support for teachers to become more proficient in the arts.

Applications must be submitted online by 4:30pm on the deadline date,
