2012-2013 Museum & School Collaborative Grant Opportunity to Integrate Indian Education for All

The Office of Public Instruction will provide support for collaborative efforts between a local museum and school district to address a two-fold purpose: exploring ways to become co-educators in topics of Montana American Indian culture and history in a museum setting and the public school classroom, and  improving the  presentation of American Indian history, artifacts and related documents in museum collections.  The OPI will award up to six grants for amounts of $7,000 - 10,000, with priority given to communities which have not participated in a prior IEFA museum – school grant.  The first step is to define the potential collaboration, second step - complete the Letter of Intent form by April 15, and the third step is to develop and submit a complete grant proposal by June 22. Upon approval, grant funding begins July 1, 2012 - June 15, 2013.
