Phase 1: Online Application
- Teaching Artists submit an initial application through our online grant application portal. The Teaching Artist Roster Panel and MSAC staff will review applications.
Phase 2: Site Review
- After successful completion of Phase 1, applicants receive an electronic notification to schedule a site visit. Applicants may select one educational engagement type they are ready to immediately offer on the roster at a mutually agreeable date, time, and location in Maryland (or remotely, for online programs.)
- The site visit will be reviewed by an MSAC Teaching Artist evaluator. Recommendations from the site visit will determine placement on the Roster. The site visit may occur at any time during the year.
- Teaching Artist applicants needing assistance identifying a site visit location or audience should reach out to the AiE Program Director for technical support.
Recommendations to the roster are subject to the review of the Teaching Artist Roster Panel, Evaluators, and MSAC staff
