ETA's Tony Bennett Arts Education Program for Partner Schools:


THE 4-YEAR PLAN:
ETA collaborates with the principal of each Partner School to develop a strategic, multi-year plan to build the school's arts program, which ETA then supports with an annual grant. Funds may pay for curriculum development, teacher training, partnerships with cultural organizations and master artists, and the purchase of arts supplies and equipment.

ARTS ACCESS GRANTS:
ETA helps provide teachers with critical resources and funds their innovative classroom arts projects.

APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM:
Made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, ETA places 11th and 12th graders as paid interns in mentorship with professionals at arts and culture organizations during after-school and summer hours, so they may develop their skills while exploring career opportunities in the arts.

SUMMER & COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS:
ETA scholarships help pay for study at pre-college, summer arts programs and for freshman year tuition at four-year colleges and conservatories.
