The First Year Teacher Grant is designed to support highly qualified arts teachers in providing quality arts education access to Title I, rural, low arts access communities.  The Texas Cultural Trust seeks to be the leading voice for the arts in education, advocacy, and economic impact in Texas, spotlighting the artistic excellence of our state. 

The First Year Teacher Grant awards grantees a one-time grant in the amount of $1,500. This grant is intended to help alleviate expenses associated with completing the first year as a teacher.
