Guidelines for smART funding
Thank you for your interest in arts funding for your students. The following is information intended to help you craft a request for funding on the smART application found on our website.
There will be an allocation of up to $4000 per school year. Funding levels are between $500 and $1000 dollars per request. This will allow for 4-8 funded requests per year. A presentation will be made in May and again in August at each school to present the opportunity and answer questions (when allowed due to COVID).
Application deadline: 09/30 each year
Funding evaluation: 11/01 each year
A committee will evaluate requests. Requests will be funded based on merit and not per school. The project/activity must be completed by 05/01 each school year. Follow up for accountability must be received by 05/30 each school year. Follow up must be received for requesting teacher to be considered for a subsequent request.
If you have questions, please call Lesia Cockerham at 336-999-4496
We look forward to serving our schools by providing requests for funding.
