Limited Submission Announcement

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Statewide Forums on Careers in the Arts for Individuals with Disabilities is designed to advance education and career opportunities in the arts for individuals with disabilities. A June 1998 National Forum on Careers in the Arts for Individuals with Disabilities and three subsequent summits on arts education, arts administration, and vocational rehabilitation assessed needs in this area and recommended strategies for addressing them. A key recommendation was the convening of statewide forums.

The Arts Endowment initiated the Statewide Forums on Careers in the Arts for Individuals with Disabilities project in 2002. Since that time, 26 states have convened forums and conducted follow-up activities. The Arts Endowment plans to award a single award of up to $50,000 to an organization to manage and support a minimum of two Statewide Forums on Careers in the Arts for Individuals with Disabilities in states that have not yet convened such a forum, and conduct a minimum of four follow-up activities in states that have convened forums.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, ltdsub@missouri.edu, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Monday, July 27, 2009. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary of the proposed project and the anticipated source of the required cost match.

Amount:

Up to $50,000, which requires a nonfederal match of at least 1 to 1. The award may be renewed for up to four years, subject to agency priorities, the availability of funds, and awardee performance.

MU Deadline:

4:00 p.m., Monday, July 27, 2009
