Good morning and happy Friday to you, readers! Winter is finally upon us and for all those here up north, have fun but most importantly stay safe in all the snow! As well as the below-average temperatures to come (not to put a damper on anyone’s day 😊).
Wednesday we shared some contests available for students to earn some cash and scholarships. Funding for schools, administrators, and educators is highly important as well and in every issue we share grants available for just that. Here are a few from our recent November issue:
Instrumental Music Grants
The Fender Music Foundation awards instruments and equipment to eligible music instruction programs that are part of US public schools or qualified nonprofit organizations. The instruments and equipment are lightly used, blemished, or otherwise imperfect and have been collected from manufacturers and retailers.
Deadline: Applications are accepted year-round
Mary Lou Anderson Reflections Arts Enhancement Grants
The National PTA Mary Lou Anderson Reflections Arts Enhancement Grants provide matching grants to local PTAs to support in-school and after-school arts enhancement programs. Grants may be used to engage families, support student success, improve the health and safety of students and families, increase access to arts education, and celebrate advocacy and diversity.
Grants up to $1,000 are awarded.
Deadline: Applications are accepted January 10 through March 17, 2017
Amber Brown Grant
The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) offers the Amber Brown Grant to commemorate author Paula Danziger. The grant is awarded annually to one school and includes a visit by a children’s book author or illustrator to encourage children and youth to read and connect them with creative influences.
Deadline: Applications are accepted November 1 through April 15, annually
