Are there any grants for furthering a teacher's knowledge. I am mainly
interested in Art History, sculpture, and assemblage. After 25 years I
have found a need for a new direction in teaching my students.

In response to the above inquiry, the Council for Basic Education has
offered independent study fellowships in the arts and humanities each
year for a number of years. Unfortunately, you just missed the
application deadline for this coming summer's fellowships. The
fellowships are funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts
and the NEH, so there may be some question as to whether they will be
offered next year but I certainly hope so. They provide wonderful
support for teachers to further their knowledge in a way that will be
useful in the classroom.

For more information, please contact:
Council for Basic Education
1319 F Street, N.W., Suite 900
Washington, D.C. 20004-1152

The National Art Education Association also offers some grant
opportunities for teachers but I am less familiar with their guidelines. The
NAEA is located at 1916 Association Drive, Reston, VA 22091;
(703)860-8000.

You might try your local arts council, too. Best wishes!
