ART EDUCATION FOUNDATION TRUSTEES INCREASE TEACHER INCENTIVE GRANTS AWARDS
TO $1,000 EACH

RESTON, VA-(May 16, 1997) The Trustees of the National Art Education
Foundation voted unanimously to increase the grant award ceiling for the
Teacher Incentive Grant Program to $1,000. Previously, the award ceiling
was $500. Matching funds are not required, however, funds from other
sources are expected to be reported. In any event, NAEF funds are to be
clearly identified to specific activities/objectives. Proposal requests
exceeding $1,000 are automatically disqualified.

The purpose of the Teacher Incentive Grant Program is to support projects
that promote the teaching of art. Teaching of art includes, but is not
limited to: the instructional process; curriculum; student learning;
student assessment; classroom behavior, management, or discipline; or other
practices relating to instructional interaction and the achievement of
student learning.

Application to the Program is open to any individual who is an active
member of the National Art Education Association (NAEA) and has been for at
least one year prior to the date of application, to state/province
associations of the NAEA, or to recognized special interest affiliates of
the NAEA. Proposals including plans for matching support will be given
favorable consideration. Proposals for the purchase of equipment,
conducting conferences, indirect costs, or the production of publications
shall not be funded. Funding for materials and travel shall be limited to
a minor part of the grant and must be directly related to the operation and
accomplishment of the project.

The postmark deadline for receiving applications is October 1, 1997. Mail
to: National Art Education Foundation, The NAEF Teacher Incentive Grant
Program, 1916 Association Drive, Reston, VA 22091-1590. Awards will be
announced on or before April 1, 1998. Selected projects will be announced
