Fine Arts Instructional Support Program (FAISP)

Granting entity: Texas Music Educators Association

Application Deadline: Monday, October 17, 2011

Purpose of Program: The goal of the Fine Arts Instructional Support Program (FAISP) is to prepare students for postsecondary college and career success through participation in high-quality TEKS-based secondary school (middle and high school, grades 6-12) fine arts programs. Awards are to be provided to fine arts programs (art, dance, music, and theatre) that have demonstrated excellence through successful competition in local, regional, or statewide events or have received recognition for exceptional performances/exhibitions by an external evaluator. Grant awards are to be targeted to fine arts programs that have experienced critical budget reductions from the three previous fiscal years’ local school district funding (2009-2010, 2010-2011, 2011-2012). Awards may not exceed $5,000 (though the district may apply on behalf of more than one program and may submit multiple applications for the same campus) and must be used for the purchase of TEKS-based supplemental instructional materials and items.  This is not a TEA grant opportunity.

Eligible Applicants: All Texas public school districts.
