Grants for Teachers
In support of art in the classroom, the American Institute of Architects Central Coast Chapter (AIACCC) offers up to $2,500 in grants per year for use at public schools in the County of San Luis Obispo. The grant funds are awarded to teachers for use in their classrooms to support artistic projects that deepen student understanding and appreciation of Architecture and its relationship to the Fine Arts. The grant award shall be used to facilitate teacher and student creativity through the purchase of teaching materials, art supplies, or fund experiences that would not otherwise be available. Our mission is to encourage and support creativity and excellence in teaching while expanding the available learning opportunities that focus on Architecture.
Amount of the Grants: $2,500 in K-12 grants per school year.
