Professional Development Grants
Professional Development Support (PDS) mini-grants help professional arts educators associated with ArtsWA Arts in Education programs to attend conferences and trainings that improve their ability to contribute to arts education. Eligible applicants are key partners in Community Consortia or First Step grants, or teaching artists currently included on the ArtsWA Roster of Teaching Artists.
The grant (maximum $500) can be used to cover up to 50 percent of the total cost of attending the training. A cash match is required. Grant funds can pay for registration fees, travel, lodging, materials fees, and other costs directly related to the training.
Complete details and funding criteria are outlined in the PDS guidelines. To obtain the PDS guidelines and application form, contact Lisa Jaret, Arts in Education Program Manager.
