​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 ​by​the Science & Cultural Collaborative utilizing funds ​from ​the ​Scientific​& Cultural Facilities District. Funding is ​subject ​to approval by the​SCC/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.​
