The Artists in Schools/Communities (AiS/C) Grant program provides funds to hire artists from the Nebraska Arts Council’s Teaching Artist Roster to lead interactive sessions conducted online or in-person. During the sessions, artists share expertise with participants through creative and educational demonstrations, performances, or guided arts activities in a variety of disciplines. Sponsors may hire an artist for an AiS/C Visits program consisting of three sessions or an AiS/C Residency consisting of ten or more sessions.
New for residencies starting July 1, 2021 or later:
Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations incorporated in Nebraska that are federally tax-exempt, public agencies and sub- divisions of governmental agencies, including PreK-12 accredited schools. Colleges and universities may apply only when significant public participation is planned, with substantial evidence of service beyond the campus community.
Deadline: Grant applications are due at least six weeks before the AiS/C program start date and are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Grant Amounts: Applicants may request between $300 - $1,650. There is no cash match required.
