Grants of up to $15,000 to Delaware nonprofit arts organizations and schools to provide PreK-12 students with quality arts learning experiences. Funding is intended to support projects in which arts organizations serve as a resource to schools before, during, and after the regular school day. The purpose of the grants is to facilitate partnerships between Delaware’s schools, arts organizations, and artists in providing standards-based arts learning experiences for PreK-12 students statewide.

Projects that have been supported in the past include, but have not been limited to:

  • Student engagement in the arts during the school day (working with an arts specialist in the classroom for hands-on programs where students are actively participating in arts activities designed to deepen and broaden learning)
  • Extended-time arts programs in the schools before or after the school day (curriculum-and standard-based arts programs designed to give students additional opportunities to create, produce, and learn through the arts)
  • Integration of the arts with other content areas and arts disciplines to provide collaborations between the arts and classroom teachers to reach mutual objectives
  • Development and implementation of standards-based curriculum and/or assessment models/tools

The Division of the Arts has established three goals for Education Resource grants:

  1. Strengthen school-based arts education programs and activities that utilize the arts education resources of the Delaware arts community.
  2. Strengthen arts organizations’ capacity to provide arts resources for students and teachers in Delaware’s public schools.
  3. Encourage curricular programs with the potential to impact current and future instructional methods utilizing the arts.
