Members Helping Members Feed Their Creativity: We'll Tell You All About It

NAEA Co-Sponsored Academies and Institutes are member-driven programs identified by NAEA as substantive professional development opportunities for members, based on the NAEA Goals for Quality Art Education. NAEA does not make cash grants for co-sponsorship. NAEA reserves first rights to publish and distribute proposed print and non-print materials resulting from the program.

Organizations holding NAEA Institutional Memberships, excluding state art education associations, are eligible to apply. The Program Director must be a current NAEA member.

 Proposed programs must adhere to the NAEA Goals for Quality Art Education.
Proposals should include a description of the facilities, accommodations, dates, program duration, faculty resumes, credit and non-credit stipulations, estimated total cost to participants and any applicable NAEA member discounts.
Within 3 months of the program's conclusion, a report including participant evaluations must be submitted to NAEA. 

Submissions must be postmarked on or before January 10 of each year. View the Co-Sponsored Academies Application Checklist.
