The Governor Wentworth Arts Council offers the Community Arts Fund (formerly the Art Education Fund) to promote the arts across disciplines within the region. The fund is open to all artists and organizations operating within the Governor Wentworth School District.


The funds must be used for the arts outside of traditional K-12 or fine art classes. Potential grant applications may include: residency fees, sponsoring a student, offering a new class, workshop materials, etc. This does not include funding for an artist to attend a workshop or class; applicants interested in funding for coursework may apply to the Priscilla Hodges Scholarship Fund. If you are not sure if your application falls under this description, please email the Grants Chairperson.

Awards are granted on a rolling basis starting in January and ending in early December. Applicants are encouraged to apply early. There is no limit to the number of times you may apply, however, successful applicants are creative, show a deep understanding of their project, and have clear goals. Awards range from $200-$1,000.

Applications closed for 2024.

Application cycle renews at the New Year.
