Submit a Proposal

The Charlesmead Foundation has provided UMBC with a gift of $500,000 over five years, Fall 2018 through Spring 2023, aimed at introducing or strengthening arts engagement opportunities for K-8 students in Title I schools in the Baltimore City Public School System (BCPSS). We are seeking proposals to fund partnerships between UMBC faculty/staff/graduate students and these schools.

Proposals should be tailored to the needs and interests of each partner, leverage the strengths of a university, and be inspired by the idea that all children are entitled to quality arts programming in the full spectrum of artistic disciplines, including Dance, Media Arts, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts.

Proposals fall into two categories based on amount of funding requested.
