Since 2005, Texas Women for the Arts (TWA) has awarded 318 grants totaling over $3.7 million to arts education programs across the state. Those numbers are sure to rise, as the application period for next year’s grants opened on October 1 and runs until December 1.

Intending to “awaken and nurture the artist in every Texas child,” TWA is a philanthropic program of the Texas Cultural Trust. Over 200 members pool their tax-deductible membership dues to fund the annual program. In order to be considered for a grant, applicants must receive a nomination from one of TWA’s members, and also be a 501(c)3 designated organization. According to a press release from TWA, “recipients will be selected based on the following principles: arts access, artistic quality, capability and impact.” 

Information on how to apply can be found on the Texas Cultural Council website. In order to help with the process, TWA has provided a list of their current members here.
