As school budgets continue to shrink across the country it is often extracurricular programs like drama clubs that see their funding disappear. Fortunately, with a little searching you can find some grant programs (here are ten) that can possibly replace some of that lost funding. Touching Lives Through Theatre Grants offers grants of $100 to $500 for middle school and high school theater programs. To be eligible for a grant the drama program must receive less than $500 annually from the school or district. Grants are available for schools in the US and Canada. Applications must be received by June 30, 2011. Read all of application requirements here.
If you run a drama program for elementary school students, you might be interested in applying for a $300 grant from The Charlie Lovett Fund for Elementary Drama.
