What is the Alliance Project Grant?
The Alliance Project partners art, cultural and science organizations with teachers in creating curriculum applications and learning opportunities for students. performances, workshops, guest artists/scientists, and field trips are provided to supplement curriculum.
The grant covers expenses for approximately 25-30 events at a value of approximately $10,000 in goods and services over the course of a year.
Our Satellite Schools are chosen from application to expand the experiences of students as well as increase the reach of our cultural organizations to diverse populations.
The Alliance Project is funded bythe Science & Cultural Collaborative utilizing funds from the Scientific& Cultural Facilities District. Funding is subject to approval by theSCC/SCFD Boards.
August to September - the SCC Coordinator conducts bi-weekly planning meetings with an interdisciplinary team of teachers (generally 8-10 teachers in one grade) to hear requests for activities that might supplement their curriculum.
Oct. to May - cultural programs and activities at the schools or field trips to cultural venues.
