The Arts in Education Model Development and Dissemination Grant Program supports the development, documentation, evaluation and dissemination of innovative, cohesive models that have demonstrated their effectiveness in (1) integrating arts into the core elementary and middle school curricula, (2) strengthening arts instruction in these grades, and (3) improving students’ academic performance, including their skills in creating, performing, and responding to the arts. The U.S. Department of Education expects to grant 33 awards ranging from $293,000 to $836,000.
