The Kentucky Arts Council’s Teacher Initiated Program (TIP) grant is for K-12 public or private schools. Teachers work with professional artists to apply for a residency that they create together based on the needs of their school/classroom. It is a match grant where the arts council pays two-thirds of the artist fee, and the school or district provides the remaining one-third.
