Be Inspired Grant
In an effort to support teachers and creativity in the classroom, Tryon Fine Arts Center awards Be Inspired Grants of up to $500 each for arts related projects to educators in area schools. BIG grants are distributed in Polk, Spartanburg, Rutherford and Henderson Counties.
Board President Jeff Byrd says, “We want to help the dedicated, creative teachers who might otherwise purchase educational supplies with their own personal funds or be unable to provide the arts experience.”
Applications for a 2018 Be Inspired Grant are due May 1, 2018. Download your application below:
