Educator Grants

Arts Grants for Santa Clara County Teachers

The ArtsEdConnect program awards grants to teachers and classrooms in Santa Clara County to support and encourage arts education in our schools. 

The ArtsEdConnect partnership of the Santa Clara County Office of Education and SVCreates is pleased to announce Arts Education grants through the generosity of the County of Santa Clara and the Warmenhoven Family Foundation.

We are pleased to announce our next grant cycle to support teachers in bringing arts experiences to their classrooms.

This year we have two options; a $500 grant that can be used for art materials, a $1000+ grant for an art project, performances, workshops, field trips or art experiences. Each grant is for a single classroom however teachers can also apply together for a joint art experience. So get your creative juices flowing for an art project or activity that will engage and inspire your students.

There will be only one grant cycle this school year and the grant applications will close on Sunday, October 9, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.
Grant funds may be used until Friday, May 12, 2023.
The grant report is due by Wednesday, May 31, 2023.
Our team will review the application and get back in touch with you by Wednesday, November 2, 2022.
Each teacher may apply for one grant: either the Materials grant or the Arts Experiences Grant.
