Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative: Theatre Classroom Resources Grant

APPLICATIONS OPEN! Apply Now for the 2019 Classroom Resources Grants

We have great news! The American Theatre Wing is now accepting applications for the 2019 Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative Classroom Resources Grants, and we encourage you to apply.

In just three years, the American Theatre Wing has distributed over $580,000 in grants to elementary, middle, and high schools across the country. The Classroom Resources Grants were designed to aid drama teachers at public K-12 schools to gain access to the resources necessary to ensure a quality, enriching, and well-rounded theatre education. We encourage any public K-12 school in the U.S. or Puerto Rico, or non-profit parent group associated with that school to apply.

Grant requests of up to $100,000 will be considered. The priority of funding will be for requests in the $10,000 to $40,000 range, allowing the Wing to extend meaningful support to multiple deserving schools each year.

The Wing understands the importance of access to resources such as production equipment, lighting supplies, musical instruments, etc, and the impact that access can have on students.That’s why a Classroom Resources Grant can help your theatre program not only be a place for your students to explore their talents and creative ideas, but to also lead them to a lifelong journey as theatre artists, technical professionals, and all around supporters of the performing arts.

The application deadline is September 27th, 11:59PM EST. To begin your application, please click here.

For more information on the Classroom Resources Grants and the Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative please visit our website. If you have any questions or concerns about the application process, please call (212) 765-0606.

Theatre education is important now more than ever, and The Wing is so excited to support its growth across the country. We sincerely hope that you will apply!
