Music Education Project Grant Information

Due February 15


The WVMEA Music Education Project Grant program allocates funds to help stimulate creativity, innovation, experimentation, or positive change in school music programs. It encourages teachers to explore new ideas and approaches to music education. It also helps provide students with additional opportunities and experiences in music.


Any music educator, group of music educators, music supervisor, principal, or superintendent employed by a West Virginia public or private elementary or secondary school may apply for Music Education Project Grant funds.


Music Education Project Grant awards are up to $500.00. Matching funds are not required; however, it is recommended that other sources of funds be used to supplement WVMEA funds.

Project Criteria

Each application will be evaluated according to the following criteria: project purpose, practicality of implementation, and implications for improvement of music teaching and learning.


Applications will be distributed for blind review to a panel of readers appointed by the WVMEA Executive Board. Recommendations will be made to the Executive Board, which will then make awards.
