Because Conservatory is tuition-free, we rely on generous funders like the NEA who recognize the talent of our students and strength of our program to keep this program going. Through its grant-making to thousands of nonprofits each year, the NEA promotes opportunities for people in communities across America to experience the arts and exercise their creativity. The NEA will make 1,023 awards totaling $74.3 million nationwide in this funding round.
NEA Chairman Jane Chu said, “The NEA is committed to advancing learning, fueling creativity, and celebrating the arts in cities and towns across the United States. Funding these new projects like the one from Wingspan Arts represents an investment in both local communities and our nation’s creative vitality.”
Thank you, NEA, for your generous support of our students!
