About the MSAC Arts-in-Education Grant

The Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC) Arts in Education (AiE) Program promotes, strengthens, and enhances the arts and arts education in Maryland's schools and communities. To accomplish its mission, the AiE Program identifies and provides access to educational arts resources available outside the school system; offers financial and technical support for arts education programs in schools and community settings for the benefit of youth, adults, teachers, and communities; assists in the professional development of Teaching Artists; and stimulates support for integrating the arts as a vital and effective element in the curriculum.

These grants typically subsidize 50% percent of the total cost of an Arts for Learning program, including materials and travel expenses.

In a given year, we work with over 100 schools throughout Maryland to submit grant applications! Our Program Coordinators are available to guide you through the application process and ensure that a correct and complete application is submitted by the deadline.

As one of the many perks of working with Arts for Learning, our Program staff will walk you through the entire process. An Arts for Learning Program Coordinator can help you:

  • identify the right program for your school
  • custom-design a program that aligns with your curriculum and meets the needs of your students
  • develop a budget that makes sense
  • learn the dos and don'ts of MSAC grant-writing
  • write a compelling narrative for your grant application
  • stay organized and on deadline

The first step is to gather some information about your school and the program that you're interested in. To get started, view our Program Staff Directory below and contact your Program Coordinator.
