Mary Lou Anderson Reflections Arts Enhancement Grant

A limited number of matching grants of up to $1,000 are awarded each year to local PTAs for student-centered programs focused on arts education. Special consideration is given to programs that reach large numbers of students, especially students who are at risk. At risk is the term applied to children whose environmental, familial, and/or socioeconomic situation may affect their academic success or ability to learn.

The grant program complements National PTA's long-standing commitment to quality arts education in public schools by providing funds to local PTAs to establish or enhance a school arts program in one or more of the following arts areas: visual arts, photography, musical composition (including dance), and literature (including theater). Local PTAs must submit applications and provide funds that match the amount they are requesting from National PTA.

Visit the National PTA website to read about past grant recipients and for more information on the grant application process. The deadline for the grant is May 1 each year.
