The American Theatre Wing launches applications for its 5th year of Classroom Resources Grants – a continuation to directly address key systemic issues that create obstacles in the education and training pipeline. These grants were established to distribute funds directly to under-resourced public schools to provide equipment, instruments, and other necessary materials to create new teaching opportunities, enhance existing theatre programs, to provide access and an introduction to theatre for children in schools.



The Wing is committed to infusing new resources into the theatre ecosystem that bolster the pipeline for historically under-represented talent – on stage and off. Any individual public K-12 school OR an affiliated non-profit parent group can apply on behalf of a school. Grant proposals up to $50,000 will be considered, and funding can be used for musical instruments, lighting equipment, sound equipment, costumes, or other theatrical resources which will enhance the education and training of its students.
