Mockingbird Foundation: Grants for Music Education
The Mockingbird Foundation awards grants to schools and nonprofit organizations to effect improvements in music education for children. Mockingbird is particularly interested in projects that encourage and foster creative expression in any musical form (including composition, instrumentation, vocalization, or improvisation), but also recognizes broader and more basic needs within conventional instruction. Mockingbird encourages applications associated with diverse or unusual musical styles, genres, forms, and philosophies. Projects may include the provision of instruments, texts, and office materials, and the support of learning space, practice space, performance space, and instructors/instruction. Mockingbird is interested in targeting children 18 years or younger, but will consider projects that benefit college students, teachers, instructors, or adult students. Maximum award: $5,000. Eligibility: public schools K-12, 501(c)3 organizations. Deadline for letter of inquiry: August 1, 2013.

National Endowment for the Arts: Art Works
NEA Art Works grants support projects that have learning as their primary outcome, in any artistic discipline, that are standards-based and align with either national or state arts education standards. Innovative projects are strongly encouraged. Maximum award: $100,000. Eligibility: 501(c)3 organizations. Deadline: August 8, 2013.
