Grant Opportunity: Surdna Foundation Arts Teachers Fellowship Program

Deadline: 11-14-2011


Arts Teachers Fellowship Program
Surdna Foundation


The Surdna Foundation seeks to foster just and sustainable communities in the United States – communities guided by principles of social justice and distinguished by healthy environments, strong local economies, and thriving cultures.


The Surdna Foundation Arts Teachers Fellowship Program (SATF) invites arts teachers from public high schools to apply for funding for artistic development. Eligible schools include specialized public arts high schools, as well as arts-focused, magnet and charter high schools. The program offers teachers the opportunity to immerse themselves in their own creative work, interact with other professional artists, and stay with new practices.


Recognizing that such teachers often lack the time and resources to reconnect with the artistic processes they teach, the Arts Teachers Fellowship Program provides grants of up to $5,500 to enable selected teachers to make art with professionals in their disciplines and stay current with new practices and resources. A complementary grant of $1,500 is awarded to each Fellow’s school to support related post-Fellowship activities.
