Funding is available for artists, arts organizations, teachers and students through the CAA’s Art For All Program. Applying is easy, and awards are distributed throughout the year. Read the guidelines below, and find out if you are eligible to get your class, project or education funded!
Artist Education Grants are designed for emerging artists who are members of the CAA residing in Walton County, Florida. The program provides support for the individual artist to take advantage of specific skill-building educational opportunities to advance their work. Artists of every artistic discipline are eligible to submit an application including Fine Arts, Performing Arts, and Literary Arts.
The purpose of the Teacher Mini Grant program is to enhance the visual, literary and performing arts experiences of all Walton County school-age children K-12 in public schools, private 501c(3) schools and home schools through funding for special enhancement activities established by a teacher. Quarterly and annual awards are available.
Scholarships are available to outgoing high school seniors or current college students who have declared or intend to declare a major in the visual, literary or performing arts at the undergraduate level. There is no deadline to apply, and applications will be reviewed by committee quarterly. The Susan Foster Scholarship, Karen Kolenberg Scholarship and Sheila Goode Scholarship are available.

Each awarded mini-scholarship will be up to $100 per child for each program.
Grants to Organizations
Grants are available to non-profit arts organizations serving Walton County, Florida in the area of arts education.
I am the music teacher at Freeport Elementary School and also grew up in Walton County. The Cultural Arts Alliance helped me go to college in 2007 by providing a scholarship and I will be forever grateful for that. I just wanted to say thank you not only for helping musical and artistic people like me, but also for inviting the Emerald Coast Theater Group to our schools here! They are at Freeport Elementary today, and the students are thrilled to be able to be a part of this! It means so much to us to have music and art in our programs and to have your support.
Thanks for all you do.
