Grant Name: Music Is Revolution Foundation Mini-Grants

Funded by: Music Is Revolution Foundation and Svengirly Music, Inc.

Description: The Music Is Revolution Foundation administers a mini-grant program for Music Is Revolution activities designed by teachers to implement, support, and/or improve their ability to provide quality music education for their students. Mini-grants up to $500 are available to teachers for music education activities of all types. Only projects that clearly contain a music education focus will be considered, for example, projects based on the concept of music education through musical experiences, initiating students into a sense of their social, academic, and cultural identity, and humanizing them through the emotional, cognitive, and/or physical impact of music. Applicants are encouraged to include activities that expose students to genres and styles of music not likely to be experienced as a part of their normal daily lives, and to plan the project with input from students, parents, and school administrators so it supports the imaginations of students while maintaining relevance to the curriculum already in place.
