First Year Teacher Grants
Supporting Arts Education Access
The Texas Cultural Trust recognizes the critical importance of providing quality arts education to every child. The First Year Teacher Grant is designed to support highly qualified arts teachers in providing quality arts education access to Title 1, rural, low arts access communities.
The First Year Teacher Grant will award grantees a one-time grant in the amount of $1,500. This grant is intended to help alleviate costs associated with completing the first year as a teacher. These grants can fund professional development, classroom enrichment, school supplies, field trips, and additional resources to enhance the quality of arts education.
The 2021-2022 grant application window will be open between July 1 – August 15, 2021.
